Can't you just see a horse drawn carriage rolling through these big doors?
With support from the San Antonio Conservation Society funding was arranged on December 31, 1987 and the carriage house was ready for a move. Each block was carefully cleaned and marked after being disassembled from the structure; following a careful move to its new location it was painstakingly reassembled, one stone at a time.
Today, the stalls are quaint seating areas for a nice little bistro type lunch restaurant, but sometimes I almost hear the big carriage horses stomping their hooves impatiently while waiting to be fed!
