THE HERRERA GATE  An Archival , Architectural, and Conservation Study

by Kay Hindes


SKU: 1832 Category:


In November, 1984 , The Herrera Gate, a badly weathered yet extremely rare example of late Spanish Colonial woodwork, was found on the Medina River in southwestern Bexar County, located on property owned by Adolph Herrera of San Antonio. This historic site was occupied by the Herrera-Ruiz families and the oral history of the families said the gate cameĀ  “from one of the missions.” According to Mr. Herrera, sometime after the battle of the Alamo in 1836 the family obtained scrap lumber from the Alamo. Circumstantial evidence strongly suggests the gate may have come from theĀ  Alamo. 8&1/2 x 11 size.
