“The river is one of nature’s greatest gifts to San Antonio and should be appreciated and developed as such.” — Robert H. H. Hugman

On, Tuesday, June 30, 2015 a bronze bust of Hugman was unveiled on the River Walk to honor the man with a vision who inextricably changed the complexion of San Antonio.
