May 26 in San Antonio history...

1898
The roof of the steeple at St. Joseph's Catholic Church has been finished.  It is the highest and finest spire in the city.  A little work about the base of the slate roof yet remains to be done.

1923
The Travis Building and Robert E. Lee Hotel are opened.

1928
A small "community auditorium" will be built in San Pedro Park at a cost of $50,000.  The structure will be built with stones carefully salvaged when the old Market House on Market, just off Main Plaza, was torn down.
