Our History

A Home, A Soap Factory, and then a Veterinarian

Nestled in the heart of San Antonio, our building has a rich and vibrant community history!

City Veterinary Hospital was at one time a residential home. It was built in the 1860’s by a Dutch immigrant and is unique in this area for its traditional Netherlands architectural style. The foundation was built with a strengthening wall around the entire exterior that extends 9 feet deep into the earth! Stacked on top of that wall are blocks of Caliche natural clay, a very uncommon material for this area.

The building remained a residential home until the early 1930s when it was converted into a small business. The type of business is unknown, but shortly after, the building was transformed into a soap factory.
