The area around Bulverde was, for many years, made up of huge ranches. For the last few decades, the ranch land has been turning into subdivisions, and by the 2000s Bulverde had become a suburb of San Antonio due to all of the ranch land being filled in by housing.
The sale of the last large ranch in the mid-2000s led to the development of the first large master-planned community in Bulverde. The community was planned in a modern style, providing open space within neighborhoods as well as environmentally friendly water and wastewater systems.
Children in Bulverde attend Smithson Valley High School or Bracken Christian School.
Bulverde is a lovely subdivision in the San Antonio area, home to thousands of families and couples who enjoy the open space and lifestyle of suburbia.
