Came here early this morning and went for a walk admiring the beautiful historic homes on King William Street. There's a lot of shade from all the trees and the air was full of fragrant flowers. I stopped by the Guenther House at the very...More

Must SEE in San Antonio. I was amazed by the beauty and history of the houses in this neighborhood. We walked down king Williams blvd (which ends at the Guethner house) Almost every house was historic in some way or another and had a plaque...More

Easy 'River Walk' from the centre and well worth it. Spend time strolling the streets and compare with architecture from other states. South Carolina features heavily.

Great time touring this neighborhood. Every house is different and many are spectacular. BE COURTEOUS! Don't hot-rod around. And don't trespass on people's property to get photos. If the residents are out in the yard and you ask nicely, they will usually be proud to...More

The King William Historic District is a quiet but vibrant neighborhood within easing walking distance of the San Antonio Riverwalk. Nestled among live oak trees, the Victorian-era architecture is charming with numerous stately homes being turned into bed and breakfasts! It's a walking neighborhood with...More

This district is good for driving through, better for walking and reading. It would be helpful to have a tour book of some kind so one could grasp the spirit of what happened in this small piece of geography near the heart of San Antonio....More

It's a doable stroll from the River Walk area of San Antonio to see these few blocks of 19th and early 20th century houses. I wish we had known that we could have walked completely along the river on a paved path between the two!...More

King William historic district is a charming place to walk and a great place for photo opportunities. It is close enough that you can lock down the Alamo or over to the Riverwalk. It’s peaceful and some places has beautiful plantings and trees.

This area is a nice area to walk and see gorgeous historic houses. There is 2 streets running parallel to the river for roughly 4 blocks. Check the Polk House for tours.

The homes are not open for tours. It's a neighborhood self walking tour so I presume you can go at anytime before dark.

We didn’t see a visitor center- we walked from the Riverwalk and all around the area looking at the historic homes.
