Some of the amazing historic neighborhoods include The King William District, Government Hill, Tobin Hill, and Monte Vista. The King William District located south of Downtown San Antonio was originally settled in the 1840’s by mostly German population. As the area developed with large homes in the Greek Revival, Victorian and Italianate styles, it became the sought after areas for the wealthier of San Antonio. San Antonio designated King William as the first historic district. It has become the center of the budding Art Community in San Antonio, which has even been recognized by the Texas Commission on the Arts.
Government Hill is linked with Fort Sam Houston due to the majority of the homes being built from 1890 to 1930. You will find examples of Gothic Revival, Classic Revival and Romanesque revival in this neighborhood. You’ll also find adorable little bungalows like the one to the left. Minutes from The Pearl, The Riverwalk and Brackenridge Park.
Tobin Hill has been around since 1731. It eventually became one of San Antonio’s first suburbs in 1883 when William G. Tobin purchased his home on “the hill”. Locals know this neighborhood by the Craftsman style homes, as well as Victorian and Neo Classical mansions. The area is renovating its historic buildings and attracting new businesses as well as enjoying a strong art community.
Monte Vista was popular with the builders and shapers of downtown San Antonio. The homes being started in the area around 1890 represented Georgian, Moorish, Antebellum, Victorian, Queen Anne, Spanish and Hollywood bungalow styles. Being near Brackenridge Park and Trinity University, there are some great walking and play space for those who also want to enjoy the outdoors.
