The Monte Vista Historic District is the largest and one of the oldest historic districts in the United States. The MVHA came into existence in an attempt to halt loss of structures to demolition and decay.
Homes in this district were built in a prosperous era between 1890 and 1930 and represent Georgian, Moorish, Antebellum, Victorian, Queen Anne, Spanish and Hollywood bungalow styles. Many of the builders and shapers of downtown San Antonio lived in these homes and have descendants living in the area today. In 1998, the Monte Vista Historical District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
