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.

Not Now

108 Lafitte Lot No. 331-single family dwelling

Description:

Two photographs of a small house at 108 Lafitte, San Antonio. It has a porch supported by 5 columns with decorative trim at the top of each column. The back of a large road sign and the top of the Tower Life Building in downtown San Antonio are visible. A fence runs along one side of the house and there is a "no parking" sign on it. The second photograph shows the house from the other side. The large sign is a political advertisement for Don Yarborough for governor. Next to one side of the house is a gas station and next to the other side is a bus depot. The house is located in an area that was redeveloped because of HemisFair '68.
