In 1881, seventeen-year-old Albert Friedrich, a bartender and bellhop at San Antonio's Southern Hotel on Main Plaza, decided to open his own saloon across the street.

Little did Friedrich know, over 130 years later, his Buckhorn Saloon and Museum would be one of San Antonio's top attractions and continue to entertain tourists from all over the world.

This staple of San Antonio's life houses a Café, Gift Shop, Shooting Gallery, and our two museums.
