Location: Gardens at Old Town, 15060 Antonio Drive, Helotes, TX
Guest Speaker: Mike Sloan
Presentation: "The History
of the Miguel Menchaca Homestead"
A historic stone villa at the foot of a hill in the city limits of Grey Forest off Scenic Loop Road stands
testament to the fascinating life of Tejano pioneer Miguel Menchaca. Built in 1858, the House of Stones was awarded Texas
Historic Landmark designation in 1965. A private residence not open to the public, the stone villa provides an intriguing
backdrop for the story of its original owner.
Mike, with his wife Susan,
purchased the historic residence in 2012. He will give a presentation on the homestead complex and his research on its long
and storied history.
Mike Sloan is a clean energy
“pioneer” working to kickstart and grow Texas’ wind and solar power industries for the past 35 years. An
advocate for foster kids, aspiring blacksmith, a lousy fisherman, and still a pioneer, now living in the 1850s Menchaca Homestead,
Mike is currently studying world history at UTSA.
