Anthony was on the Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad in the city limits of San Antonio, Bexar County; the site was six miles north of downtown, near the site of the Alamo Portland Cement Company. Anthony was established by the cement company after 1900 as a community for its employees. St. Anthony's Shrine was erected there by Peter M. Baque in 1931. The church for the settlement was called St. Peter, Prince of Apostles, and had a parish school.
