Monte Vista is comprised of 100 city blocks on the northern edge of downtown San Antonio. The neighborhood, which has been preserved as the Monte Vista National Historic District, is currently home to around 3,000 San Antonians.

Monte Vista began development in 1889 when real estate developers took an interest in a goat pasture about 5 miles north of Downtown San Antonio. Homes were built street by street, with different developers owning blocks at a time. Building was completed by the 1930s. Architectural diversity is a hallmark of the district. More than two dozen architects captured the essence of a range of national architectural trends, creating a mix of distinctive homes that give Monte Vista its unique character and appeal. The Monte Vista Historical Association is dedicated to historical preservation and education. Volunteers come together to address issues affecting the neighborhood, both internal and external.

Monte Vista lies within the San Antonio Independent School District. Private and charter school options are also nearby.
