Returning to Our Roots
In the days of the Coronal Institute, San Marcos had a thriving town core that was compact, connected, and energized. Its growth was key to the health and continuing prosperity of the region.
The end of the Civil War brought both challenges and opportunity to the region. Rebuilding the local economy--severly damaged by the war--was of supreme importance. Thankfully, men and women of vision and ambition rose to the task. Looking to the future, they created the urban infrastructure and planted the seeds that allowed San Marcos to grow and prosper.
The Coronal Institute was among the most important community assets of that day. Its large campus, sitting atop a prominent hill, served as a center of learning and culture and as a driver for city and regional growth. Most importantly, the Coronal Institute was a gathering place that connected people--a place that created community, a sense of place, and a sense of responsibility to a community-wide agenda. That connectedness is why the surrounding neighborhoods grew up around this site.
Lindsey Hill aspires to play a similar role in modern San Marcos as it responds to the ever-evolving needs of the community. It's designed to provide a graceful transition linking downtown, the University and the Heritage neighborhoods in a way that benefits all of those neighborhoods.
