Christopher Columbus Italian Society Hall

Location: 201 Piazza Halia, San Antonio, TX

Constructed by the Christopher Columbus Italian Society in 1927 to complement the San Francesco Di Paoa Catholic Church next door, this building was dedicated in January 1928. Designed by Richard Vander Stratten and built by Luigi L. Guido and Vincezo Falbo, the hall is a fine example of the classial form, with decorative brick work, pilasters, and stone detailing. It serves as the social and cultural center of San Antonio's Italian-American Communty.
