A Walking Tour of Old Town Helotes

In a joint project with the City of Helotes, the Historical Society of Helotes has published a historic walking tour map of Old Town. The 0.3-mile walking tour features 11 historically significant structures, and a 12th property—the Marnoch Homestead—is also included, although it is not on the walking tour, since it is outside of the Old Town district.

The properties on the walking tour are at least 50 years old and have historical significance in Helotes history. The map gives a short description of each of the buildings; this article expands on the history to give readers a more in-depth look into the individuals who built them and their significance.
