Longhorn is a census-designated place in Bexar County, Texas, U.S.A. Longhorn was a company owned village or town owned by the Longhorn Cement Company created for employee housing in a distant community far north from San Antonio. The community once had its own store, post office and baseball field. Since then San Antonio has expanded north to completely surround what was company property. The village was vacated, closed down and abandoned when the company closed. The area no longer appears on maps, and is totally integrated into the City of San Antonio.
