Come join the Kendall County Historical Comission as they celebrate the marker dedication for "Camino Real San Saba (Camino Viejo)"

On Friday, November 4th, a new Texas Historical Commission (THC) marker will be unveiled to commemorate the Camino Real de San Saba, a Native-American corridor with documented origins in the mid-1700s.

Prior to the unveiling, the Kendall County Historical Commission will gather at the St. Peter’s Catholic Church’s Upon the Rock Campus to highlight the remarkable and extensive heritage of this early pathway. The San Saba Trail ranged from San Antonio de Bexar northwest through Kendall County to a presidio and mission on the San Saba River (in today’s Menard County). Charting old Native-American pathways across the Hill Country’s landscape can be an elusive task, yet during the presentation you’ll learn how Spanish diaries and early survey maps served to illuminate the ancient pathway.

Free and open to the public, all are welcome.  We’ll start the program @ 10:00 sharp at the Upon the Rock Chapel, 416 W Highland Street, Boerne, TX. After the PowerPoint program, we’ll travel a short distance and gather around the marker site for the THC marker unveiling.  Any questions please call or e-mail Bryden Moon, (830) 336-3375 or bemoonjr@aol.com .
