The Witte Museum is one of San Antonio’s premiere museums hosting and producing history and science exhibits for the community. Over 400,000 people visit the Witte Museum annually. The museum and the San Antonio River Authority (SARA) are presenting an exhibit titled If the River Could Talk: 12,000 Years of Life on the San Antonio River, June 12-August 31, 2012.
This exhibition focuses on excavated archaeological finds from the San Antonio River never before seen by the public, and explores the natural and cultural resources that sustained communities overtime. SARA is celebrating 75 years of overseeing the water resources of the San Antonio River coursing through Bexar County and the surrounding areas.
Have you ever heard of Kenedy, Texas? What about Falls City, Helena, Runge, or Goliad? Surely you know of the San Antonio Riverwalk? The San Antonio River doesn’t suddenly halt once it passes the Alamo. The river flows south to San Antonio Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The spaces in between San Antonio and the Gulf, however, are relatively unknown even among Texans.
