Elm Creek is something different – literally. Elm Creek’s origins are traced to the Algo Diferente Ranch (the "Something Different" Ranch), the summer home of Albert Friedrich. Originally built in 1930, the “mansion” as it was called underwent several manifestations. In the 1940s, the Morgan Tour Company operated it as a hotel/resort for travelers on their way to and from Mexico. In the 1950’s a swim club called Castle Club operated on the grounds while the main resort started a lengthy decline. The original mansion and resort were abandoned for years and eventually bulldozed.
However, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Elm Creek emerged as the first gated, secure residential development in San Antonio. Today, Elm Creek encompasses 410 total acres, 141 acres of which are commonly owned and maintained green spaces.
Elm Creek is located within the Northside Independent School District. Homes in Elm Creek range in price from the $300,000s to well over $1 million and include a wide variety of architectural styles.
