Travel back in time with museum mural
Put yourself in the picture! Take your photo with this mural from a photo by Candelario Alegria, depicting La Vernia life in 1909, which graces the front of the La Vernia Heritage Museum, and share your photo with the La Vernia Historical Association.

Let yourself go back in time to a clear day in 1909 when Chihuahua Street was bustling with activity. Life was busy with people, buggies, horses, Model T’s, and at least one dog on the old main street of La Vernia.

The detailed photo by Candelario Alegria is now the attention-grabbing mural on the front of the La Vernia Heritage Museum on U.S. 87 at Bluebonnet Street. The printing and installation of the mural was made possible by a generous donation from the San Antonio River Authority to the La Vernia Historical Association, which operates the museum.

Details in the image include buildings which are still standing and many which are not. The fashions and modes of transportation have changed and the pedestrians are fewer, but the scene is certain to make your imagination drift back to a very different era in La Vernia’s history.

The museum is asking people to take their photo in front of this fascinating scene and send it to laverniahistory@yahoo.com or 210-392-3281 for their Facebook page. Learn more about the museum and the historical association at LaVerniaHistory.com.

Elaine M. Stephens is president of the La Vernia Historical Association, which operates the La Vernia Heritage Museum.
