The Dominion is a wealthy neighborhood and master-planned community in San Antonio, Texas. Situated on approximately 1,500 acres[1] within San Antonio's growing northwest side, The Dominion is widely regarded as one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the city, housing much of the area's upper class.[2]

History[edit]

The neighborhood now occupies a far-reaching swath of land once owned by Anson Jones, the last president of the Republic of Texas.[1] Around the turn of the century, it was sold to Adolf Topperwein, a world-renowned sharpshooter and member of Central Texas' large German community.[3]

Profile[edit]

With a resident population of roughly 3,000 people, the Dominion is home to some of the most expensive plots in the San Antonio area. The average Zillow home value in the neighborhood was estimated to be $910,848 in October 2021, a figure that is greatly enhanced when comparing San Antonio's relatively low cost of housing to other metro areas. Properties frequently go for multi-million dollar figures.[2]
