Prior to being developed our property was the home to Cementville and the Alamo Quarry. The company originally named San Antonio Portland Cement produced cement for buildings, roads and structures throughout the area. More important than the cement company were the people who worked here and the families who lived here. The company built a neighborhood here where generations of families lived, worked, went to school and grew up. That neighborhood was called Cementville. Cementville became the Quarry Golf Course in 1993 and the city of San Antonio has many more site to explore. Our top picks are below.
The Battle of the Alamo. The Battle of the Alamo was fought between the Republic of Texas and Mexico from February 23, 1836 to March 6, 1836. It took place at a fort in San Antonio, Texas called the Alamo. The Mexicans won the battle, killing all of the Texan soldiers inside the fort.
On July 5, 2015, the World Heritage Committee inscribed San Antonio’s five Spanish colonial Missions on the World Heritage List. From 1718 to 1731, priests of the Franciscan Order established the San Antonio Missions. The Spanish government and the Catholic Church sent priests to Texas—then part of New Spain—to settle and protect territory claimed by the Spanish Crown. No permanent Spanish settlements existed in the area prior to the construction of the Missions. The priests were responsible for bringing the indigenous people of the region, nomadic hunter-gatherers known as Coahuiltecans, into the Missions to create viable Spanish communities.
