Alamo Heights, Texas. Alamo Heights is located five miles northeast of center San Antonio in north central Bexar County. Alamo Heights has always been economically and socially a part of San Antonio. The area below the headwaters of the San Antonio River in Brackenridge Park in Alamo Heights was an Indian campground and a safe place for many explorers.

In 1836 the land known as Alamo Heights was included as public land in the original survey of the city of San Antonio, but in December 1837 a city ordinance provided for sale of public lands at auction to provide funds for city improvements. From this point the land would change hands many times. Finally the property was bought by Mrs. Isabel Brackenridge in 1869. In 1897 her son, George W. Brackenridge, sold the family estate, Fernridge, and 200 acres of land containing the springs of the San Antonio River to the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word. Incarnate Word College is on the boundary line between San Antonio and Alamo Heights, and Fernridge is preserved by the sisters as a museum building.

Currently located in Alamo Heights are a public swimming pool, a post office, and a shopping center; the McNay Art Institute adjoins the municipality on the north. Newspapers that have been published in Alamo Heights include the Alamo Heights Herald in the 1920s and the Alamo Heights News, from 1939 to the early 1960s. Today in Alamo Heights had a reported 7,319 residents.
