The river followed an irregular course through the town center and irrigated the lower farmlands of Mission San Antonio de Valero (the Alamo) to the south. After the mission was secularized 1793, the surrounding fields were distributed to Indians and other local residents who cultivated them until the early 1800s. Newly arrived settlers from both the United States and Europe purchased the former mission lands for their homes and small farms. By the late 1800s the area became known as Sauerkraut Bend for its riverside location and dense German population. Residents gathered at the usually tranquil waterway to swim, boat, and picnic and fled its high waters in times of devastating floods. The area thrived for over fifty years but fell into disrepair by the middle 1900s. Preservation efforts begun in the 1940s gained momentum in the 1970s, and today King William is once again a premier riverside neighborhood.
