Alamo Heights lawn care services
Alamo Heights is a tiny but affluent little city in the San Antonio area of the state of Texas. It seems at first glance to have little to recommend it to anyone. In 2010, it had just around 7000 in population. It is not likely to ever be a giant city. For those who like small but progressive places, this may be the very appeal of Alamo Heights.
The city is named, of course, for the incident that took place at the Alamo during the war with Mexico. The Alamo was a fort that was defended by the Texans to the last man, and the memory of the tragedy that occurred there brought new energy in the Texans to win the war. Since then, the Alamo is a poignant symbol of Texas spirit and freedom.
Alamo Heights, despite its name, has little to do with the Alamo except by proximity. While the Battle of the Alamo took place in 1836, this place did not have its genesis until midway into the 19th century.
George Washington Brackenridge and Charles Anderson are the two who are primarily credited with starting the town, although it was not until their lands were sold out of the family in the 1890s that the city officially began to be developed. Brackenridge was able to ensure that his grounds and home were carefully preserved. As for Anderson, later his mansion became the oldest home in the city to survive.
Alamo Heights rapidly began to be known for natural beauty. From the start, residential development and homes were not permitted to interfere with the trees and natural scenery. The company that was most influential in all of this was the Chamberlain Investment Company of Denver.
Even during the time that all of this was developing, the journey from Alamo Heights to San Antonio was traveled with dirt roads. New roads had to be made and a rail line brought in. Chamberlain Investment Company effectively failed, but from its ashes rose the Alamo Heights Company. This company encouraged more homes and development in the city in the early 1900s. The buildings that resulted were made by different companies in the different styles that still characterize much of the city today.
For a while, it looked like Alamo Heights wasn't going to have the chance to make it on its own. It seemed that San Antonio might annex them. The city voted to become a municipality instead. By then, in 1922, the population had reached around 3000. Alamo Heights developed rapidly in terms of modernization, with paved roads, eventually a community swimming pool, nature trails and much more. Now it has that friendly small-town feel without sacrificing quality of lifestyle. The city has a square mileage of 1.9.
Alamo Heights has a modern police force and fire department. They offer various types of animal services and are committed to environmental health as well. The Alamo Heights Independent School District provides academic excellence and athletic opportunity.
Alamo Heights has several other notable characteristics that those who live there enjoy. They do well in the area of good food. Restaurants and eateries abound with great eating choices. It has high home value because of the beauty and architectural interest of many of its homes. Compared to the national averages, its crime rate is low, and its education level tends to be quite high. It is considered a great place to work.
Perhaps the most attractive fact is that Alamo Heights is a gorgeous area that showcases a love of nature. Trees that are centuries old still decorate the town streets. You couldn't ask for more beautiful surroundings, both in terms of architecture and in terms of natural wonder.
This mixture of a focus on nature and a focus on modernity has made Alamo Heights a unique place to live. A small-town feel doesn't mean that the city is backwoods or limited technologically, and the population continues to seek for innovation and advancement.
