The Alamo has been managed by The Daughters of the Republic of Texas since 1905. Located on Alamo Plaza in downtown San Antonio, Texas, the Alamo represents nearly 300 years of history. Three buildings — the Shrine, the Long Barrack Museum and the Gift Shop and Museum — house exhibits on the Texas Revolution and Texas History. Just a short distance from the River Walk, the Alamo is a “must see” for all who visit San Antonio.
More than 2.5 million people a year visit the The Alamo. Most come to see the old mission where a small band of Texans held out for thirteen days against the Centralist army of General Antonio López de Santa Anna. Although the Alamo fell in the early morning hours of March 6, 1836, the death of the Alamo Defenders has come to symbolize courage and sacrifice for the cause of Liberty.
