A key player in Texas’s transition from Spanish territory to American state, merchant and landholder José Antonio Navarro participated in several legislatures and assemblies, and was a signer of the 1836 Texas Declaration of Independence, one of only two native Texans to do so. He also participated in the convention that ratified the annexation of Texas to the United States in 1845. He bought this property in the 1830s and made it his residence in the 1850s, which is when the three buildings you see were all probably built. The single-story main house with attic (to which additions were later constructed) is typical of San Antonio houses of the period. Designated a National Historic Landmark in 2017, the house hosts many special events—everything from altar-making to historic recipe displays.
