Alamo is a quiet enclave of about 12k residents that sits in the un-incorporated area of Contra Costa County between Walnut Creek and Danville, alongside highway 680 in the “east bay” region of the San Francisco bay area. Pictured here is “downtown” Alamo, which separates the town into it’s two distinct areas, east side and west side with the freeway acting as the dividing line. The west side of Alamo was developed first back the 1800’s. Much of the east side was cattle ranches and other farms. The Union Pacific railroad line followed a north-south route, hauling people and goods between San Jose to the south to the port city of Martinez to the north. Today Alamo has two elementary schools, two middle schools and one high school. Roundhill Country Club is also located on the east side of town. One things that separates most of Alamo from other communities is the fact early in the towns development, they limited lots sizes to no less that 1/2 acre of land. This regulation has served to control the growth of the community and therefore make properties a bit more exclusive. To find out more about this unique town check out City-Data or click here.
