Distractions

Visitors come to the Alamo from across Texas and all over the world. But today, events and protests like these on the historic battlefield site distract and detract from the Alamo's grand story. They occur when Texas schoolchildren visit to learn about Texas history. Under the plan, events and protests like these will move from in front of the Alamo Church to Plaza de Valero - the southern section of Alamo Plaza outside the Alamo's historic footprint. This restores reverence to the Alamo, preserves free speech, and ensures Alamo visitors get the experience they seek and deserve. Plaza de Valero will continue to be owned and managed by the city and open 24 hours a day, year-round.
