San Antonio’s historic Alamo Stadium was constructed at/near the site of an abandoned rock quarry by the Works Progress Administration (WPA) in 1938-40. The facility was dedicated September 20, 1940. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a much loved place for many San Antonians who grew up here.
In 2013 Alamo Stadium underwent a $35 million renovation which restored the facades, including plaques and markers.
The following web site has an aerial picture of the new stadium and the cover page of the dedication program: My San Antonio website
