(The San Martin House)The Curbier Family, which was granted land in La Villita after the 1819 flood, sold this property in 1854 to Rafael Herrera, husband of their daughter Vicenta. Herrera built this house and owned it until 1897. The property, which extended back to Nacional Street, was bought by Thomas Dechman and P.H. Degnan, who operated the Dechman Coffee and Spice Mills there from 1903 to 1928. The coffee warehouse was located in an adjacent building On Nacional Street. The Public Service Company bought the property in 1935. After the City of San Antonio acquired it for La Vil1ita's restoration, the warehouse was demolished to make room for the construction of Bolivar Hall. The house was named for Don José de San Martin, who fought for the cause of independence in Argentina, Chile and Peru.
