Monticello Park Neighborhood


Monticello Park Neighborhood Association is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization.  The homes of Monticello Park are an extraordinary collection of architecture; Revival styles, English Tudor, Spanish Colonial, Greek, Italianate, Neoclassical, Mission, Craftsmen, English Stone Bungalow, and Art Moderne. Virtually every house proudly shows the handiwork of individual artisans. The masonry, the plasterwork, Mexican mission tile, arches, built-ins, cartouches, and turrets– all touches that make these homes truly unique.

The area was once a dairy farm owned by George Calvert.  Mr. Calvert sold his farm to developers, and Monticello Park, originally called Woodlawn Terrace, grew from the 1920s to the 1940s. Its growth reflected the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, and finally World War II.  The neighborhood attracted the growing class of merchants and professionals of the time. Many of the homes were designed by San Antonio architect, Nathan Straus Nayfach. (City of San Antonio)
