History - Southwest Craft Center was built by French nuns in 1848 which served as the first girls' school in the city. The century-old French Chapel and large garden, surrounded by grand trees, are hidden quietly away in the heart of downtown San Antonio--a tranquil oasis on the banks of the romantic San Antonio River.
