San Antonio, Texas, is the city that called Col. Charles E. Cheever Sr. and Betty Cheever when the young West Point commissioned officer began his duty on Fort Sam Houston. For so many reasons, it was an instant love affair and immediately became the place they wanted to call home.
There is a lot to love—from the famed Riverwalk with 1 ½ miles of shops, cafes, restaurants and clubs to the historic missions of San José, Concepción, San Juan Capistrano, Espada and of course the city’s number one tourist spot, The Alamo. More than 2.5 million people visit the 4.2-acre complex every year.
Lackland and Randolph Air Force Bases are now merged with Fort Sam Houston as Joint Base San Antonio, supporting a population of 80,000 and 138,000 students annually.
Fiesta is a vibrant celebration, dating back to 1890 and draws 3.5 million revelers to San Antonio each year. Great food, stunning floats and regal gowns steal the show, while 100 non-profit organizations are behind the scenes making it all happen. A recent study revealed a $284 million impact for the local economy and about $600,000 in non-profit proceeds. Don’t miss Fiesta!
Rounding out the excitement in San Antonio—the Spurs, 5-time NBA™ champions; the Tower of the Americas, at 750 feet tall, it offers the most spectacular view of the Alamo City; Hemisfair Park and a myriad of museums and malls. From the military museums on JBSA-Fort Sam Houston to the all-new Doseum, San Antonio’s museum for kids, the arts scene is thriving in the Alamo City. Theaters like the Majestic, the Tobin Center and the San Antonio Playhouse add to the artsy attractions. Shopping can be a cultural experience at La Villita Historic Arts Village downtown or El Mercado, a three-block outdoor plaza lined with restaurants, shops and produce stands near San Antonio’s city center. Malls are spread throughout the city from the Downtown Rivercenter to La Cantera in far northwest San Antonio.
In 2016 we celebrated our 75th anniversary and reflected on the dream Col. Cheever and Betty realized to open a bank back in 1941 that would serve the San Antonio community. Their dream culminated in the Broadway Bank Headquarters in 1968 at the corner of Nacogdoches and Loop 410. Today, our 3rd and 4th generation Cheever family members are working at the bank. Stop by for a cup of coffee and visit with us.
