The University of the Incarnate Word, San Antonio, Texas was founded in 1881 and is located near the headwaters of the San Antonio River. The campus is the site of The Blue Hole, sometimes referred to as the “San Antonio Spring,” which is a fresh spring and the source of the San Antonio River. For centuries, this historic source provided millions of gallons of crystal clear water daily to generations of Native Americans and early Texas Settlers. The San Antonio River begins just south of this point, near the UIW campus footbridge, where the Olmos Creek and The Blue Hole flow come together and, supplemented by hundreds of smaller springs along the way, continues its journey all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.
