STAR is coming to the King William Historic District on October 3 and 4. At its October 2014 meeting, the KWA board voted to donate $6,500 to the STAR program specifically for an event in the King William Historic District. Our donation will sponsor rehabilitation of five houses. Supporting the STAR program is one of the goals of the KWA Strategic Plan.

Students Together Achieving Revitalization is a program organized in the City’s Office of Historic Preservation (OHP) in partnership with graduate and undergraduate architecture and construction students from UTSA and San Antonio College. Students learn from local contractors to repair windows and screens, replace rotted wood of siding and porches, and perform exterior painting. This is a free service provided to property owners with houses located in the King William Historic District and chosen through an application process submitted to OHP. 

Applications are due to Edward Hall, Office of Historic Preservation, by Wednesday, September 9. For more information contact Mr. Hall at 207- 4680 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Volunteers are also needed to help. Are you willing to be a house leader? Are you a contractor willing to donate some of your time or particular expertise? Are you a restaurant owner willing to donate lunch? If yes, please contact Cherise Bell at 227-8786 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
