Our Statement on Monuments to Oppression

We believe it is past time for us, as a nation, to acknowledge that some monuments do not reflect, and are in fact abhorrent to, our values and to our foundational obligation to continue building a more perfect union that embodies equality and justice for all. Our view is that unless these monuments can in fact be used to foster recognition of the reality of our painful past and invite reconciliation for the present and the future, they should be removed from our public spaces.

Upcoming Closures & Schedule Changes


Dear Villa Finale Friends and San Antonio Neighbors:
The Spring and Summer of 2020 will certainly be seasons to remember.  None of us have experienced anything like the COVID-19 outbreak and the repercussions of the pandemic.  Try though we may, it has proven impossible to make short-term, let alone far-reaching, plans.

Our staff has been working diligently to ready Villa Finale for reopening to the public; however, our efforts have been thwarted by the latest surge in COVID-19 cases.  Seeking the most prudent route for providing safety for both our staff and visitors, we have made the difficult decision to remain closed through the remainder of the summer.

Although the historic site will not be physically accessible to our guests, we will be presenting virtual opportunities for viewing and participating in many programs throughout the next several weeks and months.  Please check our website, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media outlets for the latest news and information on these offerings.

We extend our most sincere wishes for good health and wellness, and very much look forward to welcoming you back to Villa Finale (in person!) after the Labor Day weekend.

With our deepest gratitude for your continued interest and support,
Jane Lewis
Executive Director
