Okay folks do you all remember the Lone Star Brewery when the Bicentenial train was parked in there huge railroad lines that went into the brewery..???The actual train ithat pulled the exhibit thru Texas is now located
in Palestine Texas...It is sad to see the Brewery going to waste and rotting away, it was a neat place to visit and see the Buckhorn Saloon, now it is located on Houston Street....

I remember the Olympic size pool that they had in back on the Brewery grounds, I have been trying to find pictures of it on the Internet, but really no luck....It seems that I am going to have to walk on the outside of the fence next to the San Antonio River which is next door to Roosvelt Park and take whatever pictures I can of what is left of it.....any pictures of the swimming pool???

There are developers interested in redeveloping the Brewery, don't know how soon we'll see any action.

At one time the City Water Board was interested in the Property but then they found lead and oil had penetrated the ground from there next door neighbor Newell Salvage...My Mom that lives on Probandt street had all the dirt around the house dug up and hauled away, due to contamination, also mostly all of Probandt street from Bank to Simon St was also dug up, Newell Salvage received a big fine for all the damage done...

Southtown which includes all of South Alamo from St Marys street to Probandt is really developing, some sort of Condos are going to be going up at the corner of Cevallos and Probandt....

If it's the area I'm thinking of, there are developers looking to develop it, but have been a lot of issues with contamination and environmental studies. The Current has regular articles about it.

It is likely that the brewery and surrounding area will be re-developed in conjunction with the river improvement project. Industrial type operations will probably re-locate and be replaced by shops/restaurants/townhomes. Could be a good area to invest in now, before the re-development?

Default Pool

Yep that is what it was, they called it an AquaPool, and as for the manmade lake around it, I need to go to the Brewery and take some pictures.....They do have security on the property, but heck they are never around to ask them if I can take the pictures I want....Like I said before, " Seems like I am going to have to walk outside the fence line next to the San Antonio River to take the shots that I want of the pool.....
