Construction of Bolivar Hall was begun in 1940 and completed in 1941. The combination library, museum, and community center was dedicated to the promotion of inter-American peace, and was named in honor of South American patriot, Simon Bolivar. Bolivar Hall was constructed on the site of the Dechman Coffee Company warehouse and two small houses at 113 and 117 Nacional Street. A branch of the San Antonio Public Library operated here for several years, as well as a museum and information center.

The building was intended to be built of caliche blocks excavated from the site, but was built in a more contemporary way using limestone veneer. The buildings style is reminiscent of early buildings in San Antonio such as the old Ursuline Academy dormitory.
