I asked my wife, whose father was the pilot who took the photographer to do
"map surveying" for the land owners. I'm not sure what the details are for doing
this .

Default Ranch House

The picture of the ranch house is definitely located on Hwy 16 north approximately 10 miles north of Helotes. I know this because I have lived there since the early 60's. The house was built in 1923.

hey albert.
i remember Delaney's Ice. i think it was where the shell station now stands at huebner & fred rd. i have no pics of wolfs inn, but i definitely remember it. i used to know a girl back in the late 70's who lived on the old prue road(babcock and NEW prue rd), in a small trailer park right on the road. she had horses, and kept them at a place called Doc's Arena. i have pics of the arena. it was located around the abe lincoln & pembroke area. had an old stone house there with 2 fireplaces. i believe the land was owned by Mr. Luby, who owned Luby's restaurants. but i cannot confirm that. bob luby, the son, lived in the house. he was a drunk. nice guy, but a drunk. lots of good times out there ridin' horses and tellin tall tales...

Thanks for the responce.DeLaney's was my first job at 14.You mentioned PRUE Rd and Babcock Rd.,do you happen to remember a farmer who had a Red barn on huebner at old Prue rd,who had a barn full of old 1920's,30' car parts? or was did just dream that my father and I went inside and talked to the gentleman who owned the property.That's always been in the back of my mind.And yes I do remember doc's arena,and the small trailer park near the small creek where a large church is now,just before you get to EVERS Rd.Did the DONKEY LADY ever come up?.

Interesting post on the Nix Dairy farm and Oak Hills Country Club SATX56. Trying to fit it in some online research I did recently on the Oak Hills Country Club and found it goes back to probably 1921 when it was the Alamo Country Club. Around 1931, Fred A. “Cap” Tallmadge who owned a few other clubs through the years but one that caught my eye was his "Tallmadge Inn".

Of course back then when giving an address everything outside the city limits was like 7 miles out. Then after finding some directions in an old newspaper - "The property is bounded on the south by Callaghan Rd. and on the west by Babcock Rd." I'm thinking Oak Hills Country Club. Could that be the same place? Yep, that where Oak Hills came from.



Oak Hills Country Club (ca.1955)

Thats funny, can you imagine SA being laid out like Las Vegas or Phoenix or imagine the Riverwalk flowing in a straight line like the Brick Town Canal in OKC.

THAT WOULD BE SO BORING!!!!

Default San Antonio Early History

I think Locke Hill was once a community maybe.The Selma part might come from Selma out here in eastern Bexar County.Maybe the road ran from that part of town all the way out to Selma?
