The King William Historic District is one of the many little neighborhoods in San Antonio, Texas that is worth a stroll. This little enclave begs you to explore on foot, especially if you like a variety of residential architecture. Each home has its own unique flavor in this area that was first settled by wealthy German merchants. Lest you wonder how it was named “King William”, it’s good to know that Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm is at the root of the English name.
After working up an appetite strolling through this compact neighborhood, I headed to the Guenther House at Pioneer Mills for lunch. This was once the home of the family that founded the mill, and now there’s a luncheonette and restaurant as well as a great foodie gift shop upstairs.
