History of Terrell Hills Real Estate

Terrell Hills is a city in Bexar County, Texas, United States, located five miles northeast of downtown San Antonio. It is part of a group of three cities — Terrell Hills, Alamo Heights, and Olmos Park — located between downtown San Antonio and Fort Sam Houston (a U.S. Army post). Terrell Hills is bordered on west by Alamo Heights, on the east by Fort Sam Houston, and on the north and south by San Antonio. It is part of the San Antonio Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The community is named for Dr. Frederick Terrell, a local bank president who had served as mayor of San Antonio in 1901. Development of the community began in 1919, when Dr. Terrell sold 22.5 acres (91,000 m²) of property to a private association called the "Terrell Hills Community". This organization managed the community until 1939, when it incorporated as a municipality. In 1945, San Antonio attempted to annex the new municipality without permitting an election in either Terrell Hills or San Antonio, but Terrell Hills successfully sued to block the annexation. Twelve years later, in 1957, the community adopted a home rule charter.
