Many San Antonio institutions began in the 1890s: Battle of Flowers Parade; Peacock Military College; Buckhorn Saloon; Gebhardt’s Chili Powder Company; Bexar County Courthouse; Brackenridge Park…..and the San Antonio Liederkranz. Some of those institutions are no longer around, but the San Antonio Liederkranz—a men’s choir formed on July 11, 1892 by Father Henry Pfefferkorn as the choir of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in downtown San Antonio—is alive and strong with more than 50 active singers.
