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 Star 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.


The San Antonio River Foundation commissioned and funded public artworks for the benefit of our community and in support of our partners in the $384M San Antonio River Improvements Project. All works along the Mission Reach have been donated to the City of San Antonio’s public art collection in perpetuity.
