Burleson Street home shows craftsmanship after 115 years: The Joyce – Hansen home

Coronal Institute: Shown is the Hutchison Street entrance of the Coronal Institute, San Marcos’ first educational facility, in its innovative glory days around the turn of the century. It drew wealthy ranching families into town so their multiple children could attend. It was those families who built many of the big houses in today’s Historic District. Coronal closed in 1918, its structures sold to SMCISD which tore them down in 1949 to build the mid-century modern Lamar High Schools.
