Alamo Heights Homes for Sale

Incorporated in 1922, Alamo Heights is a 2.1 square mile zoned municipality just 4.5 miles north of downtown San Antonio. Alamo Heights began as an idyllic dream that two local entrepreneurs had in the mid-1880s. George Washington Brackenridge and Charles Anderson wanted a place within the newly-growing city that was a natural paradise, and set about building it in 1890s. At the turn of the century, San Antonio tried to annex Alamo Heights, but the citizens would have none of it. They organized a petition to a local judge and on June 20, 1922, they became a municipality. Alamo Heights was also the first city in the entire county to have all of their streets paved. The population as of the 2010 census was 7,031. Extensive remodeling has taken place over the years in Alamo Heights, as has tear-downs and new construction of single family residences.

Alamo Heights is served by the Alamo Heights Independent School District (AHISD), one of the most prestigious public school districts in the city. Campuses include the aptly named Alamo Heights High and Alamo Heights Junior High. There are also several private schools in Alamo Heights in case you prefer a religious and/or private education for your children.
