Balcones Heights is a unique suburban city incorporated in 1948. Its wooded homesites were promoted during the Depression as affordable for families “of moderate means.” It was at the crossoads of two new interstae highways and a shopping mall and other businesses flourished to bring much needed revenue. John Wayne cut a cake at a supermarket here celebrating the premiere of his movie “The Alamo.” Illustrated. Signed by the author.
