Like many other neighborhoods in Central Austin, Oakmont was developed in stages. In the 1920s, a neighborhood was platted, but never developed. Had that been built, it would have been called Military Heights. However, it wasn’t until the following decade where 36th, 37th and the south side of 38th Streets were developed. These homes are unique in that they have alleys behind them. In the 1940s and 1950s the rest of 38th, 39th and 40th were developed, followed by 41st and 42nd St in the early 1950s. Roads in Oakmont Heights were originally unpaved, but that changed when the city annexed it in 1946. Today’s residents are drawn to the neighborhood’s mature landscaping and larger lots. Many of the streets are shaded with tall trees, which helps block some of the noise from MoPac. Scroll Down to Read our Oakmont Heights Neighborhood Guide.
