Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

[Mexican Presbyterian Church Entrance]

Description:

Photograph of the entrance of a Mexican Presbyterian church from the front door up. There is a small roof over the double-door entrance, as well as a sign in Spanish that translates to read, "336 'Emmanuel' Presbyterian Church. Enter through these doors with thanks." The building has two large windows on either side of the door, and the window on the right-hand side of the image has a large air-conditioning unit attached to it. The roof of the building spans the entire image, and there is a power line attached on the left-hand side. A garage with a driveway and a bicycle is visible in the background on the bottom of the left-hand side of the image. There is a handwritten note on the back of the photograph that reads, "San Antonio. Emmanuel Church".
