Welcome to Alamo

Suburban charm coupled with gorgeous natural surroundings
A few years after the state of California was incorporated, pioneers Mary Ann and John Jones settled in the state. John became Alamo’s first postmaster, and Mary founded a Presbyterian church. Eventually, other families such as the Hemme, Bollinger, Jones, and Stone created ranches to graze cattle and harvest grains. Over time, vineyards and orchards spread throughout the region and paved the way for the Alamo we know today. At present, Alamo is known for being a semi-rural community with beautiful scattered homes, open spaces, and lush green surroundings. Despite its small-town essence, residents can enjoy a wide range of activities, events, local attractions, and an abundance of parks and recreational opportunities.

  • Great community events

In addition, many festivals are held in the city to bring the community together for communion and charitable events.
