Casa Navarro State Historic Site, a Texas Historical Commission property, is situated in the heart of old San Antonio, in what used to be a thriving Tejano neighborhood known as Laredito. Visitors can experience José Antonio Navarro's original one-story, whitewashed adobe and limestone house—a fine example of early San Antonio domestic architecture—and explore his historical contributions, stories, and legacies through new, multi-sensory and hands-on exhibits.
Learn about 19th-century lifeways and community in the old "Laredito" neighborhood. There is also a two-story square store and office building, noted for its bold quoins, which anchor the edges of the building’s walls. The detached adobe and caliche-block kitchen is typical of early Texas architecture with front and rear porches.
Designated parking spots for visitors to Casa Navarro are available in the parking lot across from the entrance.
