Casa Navarro

Former home of cattleman and Texas patriot José Antonio Navarro (1795–1871), Casa Navarro was saved from demolition in 1960, designated as a Texas State Historic Landmark in 1962 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. Although it’s open year-round for tours ($1-$4 per person), the historic site opens its doors Tuesday evening for an informative and tasty Tamalada Publica. Coinciding with the City’s Downtown Tuesday initiative (park for free at city-operated parking garages, parking lots and parking meters every Tuesday evening from 5 p.m. – 2 a.m.), the free event invites attendees to “spread masa and fold corn husks while learning about the origins of tamales in Texas.” While guests won’t be able to take the tamales home, Casa Navarro will provide samples along with pan dulce and hot chocolate.” Free, 5-8pm Tuesday, Casa Navarro State Historic Site, 228 South Laredo, (210) 226-4801, visitcasanavarro.com.
