• A NEW VISION FOR SACRED GROUND


  • The Alamo Master Plan

    Developed Cooperatively by Texas General Land Office, City of San Antonio and Alamo Endowment

    The Alamo is one of the most important historical sites in the world. With a story more than 300 years old, it’s no wonder that more than one million people come to see it each year. They come to learn about its days as a Spanish mission or to walk the ground Lt. Col. William Barret Travis did before he wrote his “victory or death!” letter. These hallowed grounds have a big story to tell, but after centuries of urban development, that story is often misunderstood. That is about to change.

    IT’S TIME TO REIMAGINE THE ALAMO.

    The State of Texas General Land Office, the City of San Antonio, and the private Alamo Endowment are teaming up to Reimagine the Alamo by developing a new master plan for the Alamo and surrounding acres.

    So join forces with us. Sign up for the newsletter below to stay informed.
