Rededication of King's Highway Marker
Rededication of King's Highway marker at the intersection of Nacogdoches and Higgins roads, San Antonio, TX, October 1999. The El Camino Real trail (the royal road), known to exist as far back as 1691, was identified with historical markers in 1918. The DAR undertook the project to place a total of 128 pink granite markers, one about every five miles for the entire length of the route, running from Eagle Pass, Texas, to Natchitoches, Louisiana. The route is also known as King's Highway and the Old San Antonio Road. It was used by Spain and later Mexico to supply outposts in East Texas, and also was used by Indians, pioneers, and others to travel across Texas.
