The History of Aggie Park

In 1946, Aggie Park was created as the home of the San Antonio A&M Club.  This facility is one of a kind.  No other alumni club anywhere has a facility as unique as Aggie Park.  When the San Antonio A&M Club was granted is original charter by the Texas Secretary of State, 3.3 acres of land on the outskirts of San Antonio, next to Olmos Creek, were purchased from Henry Wier's dairy by 10 men who personally bankrolled that far sighted vision.  It was a place where Aggies  could meet with friends and family to share the traditions of Texas A&M. 

As time passed the number of Aggies grew, improvements to the land were started.  A BBQ pit was built and a patio added.  A building began to grow slowly through the efforts of dedicated Aggie volunteers.  Concrete block and bricks were donated to build the walls, and windows that were salvaged from Beeville AFB were installed.  Also, drill stem pipes from the oil fields in Victoria, TX. were donated to build the roof trusses.

During Muster, April 21, 1954, the San Antonio A&M Club dedicated Aggie Park to the memory of all Aggies who had given their life in protecting our country.  By then the park had become a landmark in the San Antonio Community.  Continued improvements were made through the contributions of material and labor from dedicated Aggies.  In 1979 the San Antonio A&M Club moved its daily operation to Aggie Park along with the weekly Monday luncheon.
