About Helotes

Helotes Texas an Informative History
Helotes Texas
Helotes was settled in the mid-1850’s by Mexicans who intermarried with the Apache Indians in the area. A man named Chaca is rumored to be the first person to build a home and cultivate a cornfield in Helotes, which in Spanish means “green roasting ear of corn.”

Helotes Texas
By 1885 the community had a postoffice, hotel, school, general store, and a population of fifty. By 1914, Helotes’ population grew to over 700, but between 1930 and 1945 it fell to about 100. Since the 1960’s the city has grown steadily. In the 2000 census, the population was 4,285 and has since grown to an estimated 6,187 by 2005.

Bulverde The Bulverde area was originally home to many American Indian tribes, including the Lipan, Tonkawa, Karankawa and Waco tribes. Arrow heads, including one known as the Bulverde Point, can still be found in the hills surrounding the area.


Garden Ridge The Garden Ridge area is rich in history and has been home to many residents including Native American Indians, Spanish and German settlers, and more. Our own “Nacogdoches Road”, known as the King’s Highway served as a main route between San Antonio and Nacogdoches during the Spanish occupation of the area. The road was built to transport the King of Spain between the two cities.


Leon Valley The Valley of Lions, Leon Valley developed after WWII and incorporated as a town in the 1950s. Leon Valley is noted for appearing to have more businesses than homes.


Windcrest In the beginning, Barbee and Murray Winn had a vision. In the middle of their vacant fields, where crops had been harvested, they viewed a city, yet to be developed, where people could live and raise families; where friendships would grow; where patriotism and civic pride would thrive; where peace and tranquility could be experienced. Enjoy the proud history of Windcrest!


Spring Branch The Spring Branch area is a wonderful place to live, raise a family, and be in business. Thanks to its strategic location, Bulverde/Spring Branch is a hub for those larger cities surrounding it: San Antonio to the South, Johnson City to the North, Boerne to the West, and New Braunfels to the East. Many residents of the surrounding cities come to the Bulverde/Spring Branch area for relaxation.


Shavano Park The City of Shavano Park was originally known just as Shavano, and was located approximately 12 miles north of downtown San Antonio, along the Olmos Creek.
