May 31 in San Antonio history...

Congregation Temple Beth-El is organized.

Construction is begun on the Southwest Texas Lunatic Asylum, about 5 miles south of the city, on land donated for that purpose by the city.(It is later known as the Southwest Insane Asylum and now the San Antonio State Hospital).

The gateway to the city is dedicated at Bandera Road and Cincinnati Avenue.

Sean Elliott hits the "Memorial Day Miracle" 3-point shot with 9.9 seconds remaining to lift the Spurs over the Portland Trailblazers, 86-85, in game two of the series.
