After the Fair

The U.S. Pavilion was one of the few structures built for the fair with an intended purpose beyond HemisFair ’68. After the fair the pavilion was renovated to begin its new permanent roll as San Antonio’s federal courthouse. In later years a multi-level federal building was built next to the pavilion along Durango St. where the IBM Durango pavilion and Project Y were located during the fair. The court house was named after San Antonio judge John H. Wood and the adjoining annex was named after Adrian Spears

Below are pictures of the pavilion today. (Click on images for a closer look)

In 2008 it was announced that the federal courts would be moving out of the U.S. pavilion and the adjoining federal building to into facilities near the city’s existing court houses. The city is considering many ideas for the use of the site once it becomes available.
