Dignowity Hill

The area, about five minutes from downtown, has experienced a lot of change in recent years. Many of the old houses that had been abandoned over the years have been renovated and put on the market. Longtime residents have seen an influx of homebuyers and businesses. Dignowity Hill was San Antonio’s first exclusive residential suburb. According to the Office of Historic Preservation archives, the area was named for Czech immigrant Dr. Anthony Michael Dignowity (1810 – 1875). Dignowity’s family home, Harmony House, was built on a hill to the east of town. After many decades, the house was demolished, and the land eventually became what is now Dignowity Park. Today, the neighborhood is among the city’s many historic districts. The area’s rich history and proximity to downtown continue to appeal to many homebuyers. Nearby attractions and landmarks include The Alamo, River Walk, St. Paul’s Square, The Pearl, Hays Street Bridge, and the Tower of the Americas.
