About the Mays Family Center, South Texas Heritage Center and Witte Museum

The Mays Family Center features a majestic 10,000-square-foot space, which unites the historic views of Broadway Street with the ancient panorama of the San Antonio River. The adjoining Zachry Family Acequia Gardens is the most historic spot on the Witte campus and dates to 1719. The Acequia Madre, or Alamo Acequia and Diversion Dam, were built by Mission Indians during the Spanish Colonial period. They carried water through diversion ditches to the acequia, traveling the same route as Broadway to the Presidio, to irrigate crops near the San Antonio missions.
