Ewing Halsell Pedestrian Bridge

Original Lone Star Brewery barrel bridge


Roy Smith Street

Beer barrels once rolled across this narrow steel truss bridge when it linked the production and distribution towers of the turn-of-the-20th century Lone Stone Brewery, now home to the San Antonio Museum of Art. Kept in storage for many years, the historic bridge, weighing 8.6 tons, now serves as a pedestrian footbridge across the San Antonio River just north of the museum. A gift from Mark Watson, the bridge installation was underwritten by Ewing Halsell Foundation of San Antonio.
