The 1883 Dashiell House, once a brothel in San Antonio’s red-light district before serving as a nursery, is now eligible to become a designated landmark—against the will of its owner.
The family that owns the Golden Star Café in west downtown is taking the unusual step of asking the city to strip a building of its historic designation after the Historic and Design Review Commission denied a bid to demolish it earlier this month.
When they opened in 1941, the Alazán-Apache Courts were a relief from the slum conditions that defined the West Side. A new exhibit called “Los Courts,” which opens Saturday, explores that legacy.
