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 price of a home in the neighborhood is around $700,000 and median residential income is $180,000,[2] figures that are greatly enhanced when comparing San Antonio's relatively low cost of living to other metro areas. Properties start at around $400,000 and range to well-above $1,000,000, depending on the house.[2]
