San Antonio: La Villita Historic District

Originally a Payaya Indian settlement, Spanish explorers and missionaries first came to the site of the present-day "Little Village" in 1691. Restored and revitalized during the Great Depression, the historic area now houses a thriving arts community. Influential Tejanos interred at nearby San Fernando Cemetery No. 1 include José Antonio Navarro, Capt. José Antonio Manchaca, and José de Jesús Rodriguez.
