Lewis F. Fisher, San Antonio's celebrated historian, has published forty-five books on topics ranging from San Antonio’s Spanish heritage to its urban development. He has written about Texas in every genre from sports and architecture to multicultural legends. His most recent books are American Venice: The Epic Story of San Antonio's River and Chili Queens, Hay Wagons, and Fandangos: The Spanish Plazas in Frontier San Antonio. Fisher was named a Texas Preservation Hero by the San Antonio Conservation Society in 2014.

The Alamo and four other Spanish missions, recently marked as a UNESCO World Heritage site, are the most obvious but there are a host of landmarks and folkways that have survived over the course of nearly three centuries that still lend San Antonio an "odd and antiquated foreignness.

Few American cities enjoy the likes of San Antonio's visual links with its dramatic past. The Alamo and four other Spanish missions, plus a host of additional landmarks and folkways surviving over the course of nearly three centuries, still lend San Antonio an "odd and antiquated foreignness."Adding to the charm of the nation's ninth largest city is a bend in the San Antonio River, saved to become a winding linear park through the heart of downtown and a world model for sensitive urban development.San Antonio's heritage has not been preserved by accident. The wrecking balls and headlong development that accompanied progress in nineteenth-century San Antonio roused an indigenous historic preservation movement—the first west of the Mississippi River to become effective. Its thrust has increased since the mid-1920s with the pioneering work of the San Antonio Conservation Society.
