Whispering Oaks is a beautiful neighborhood located in the north-central part of San Antonio. It is built on a tract of land that had been used by the Chittim family for generations as a working ranch. Deer and cattle grazed together beneath its majestic oaks, and there were also open farming areas used to grow corn and hay. The ranch was divided by a creek, the headwaters of the Olmos Creek and the San Antonio River. This creek was enlarged and deepened to a channel and now provides the protection needed to take the maximum capacity for a 100-year rainfall. Because of these headwaters, many different people have lived here: Apache and Tonkawa Indians hunted here until the mid 1800s when the Comanche Indians pushed them into Mexico. The first residents here found flint and arrowheads in their backyards. Whispering Oaks homeowners believe that these hills, beautiful oak trees, and natural headwaters make this area the most wonderful place to live and rear families. The outstanding Northside School District serves this area. Retirees love Whispering Oaks because it is located in an area where churches, malls, libraries, restaurants, medical facilities, and grocery stores are very convenient. The neighborhood has a Garden Club, a beautiful Swim and Tennis Club, and a very active Homeowners Association that serves the community’s needs.
