Inside410 Historical Marker Love - San Fernando Cathedral

These markers surround us because we live in a community steeped in history and culture. We are sometimes so inundated with what we have in front of us that we end up not taking a minute to enjoy the past that has so enriched our lives and gives our city such a unique and wonderful spirit.

Marker Text:

Built by Spanish subjects during the middle of the eighteenth century, San Fernando was a visible sign of San Antonios origins. Its prominent location between the two central plazas of the city was a silent reminder of enduring Tejano presence and vitality. For Tejanos, their parish was not an immigrant haven in a strange new land, but the one institution from their past which was not taken over by Anglo-American immigrants to their city. As such, it was not a way station on the road to assimilation, but a focal point for Tejano resistance to the diminishment of their religious and cultural heritage.
