Pioneer Flour Mill & Guenther House Restaurant, San Antonio, TX // The tower of the old Pioneer Flour Mill stands watch at the southernmost end of King William. The name of the Guenther family which owned it survives today both as the name of the District avenue that passes it, and as the name of the Guenther House restaurant which sits in the tower’s shadow.
Many Germans immigrants began to settle in this area by the 1870s and it became known as "Sauerkraut Bend" to the rest of San Antonio. In 1967 the King William District was designated the first Historic Neighborhood District in Texas. The Steves Homestead at 509 King William is the only residence open to the public for tours.
