Restoring and Preserving the Shrine of Texas Liberty

On March 6, 1836, 189 Texians and Tejanos gave their lives at the Alamo for Texas liberty. In 2011, the Texas Legislature tasked the General Land Office with management and maintenance of the Alamo and today, remains under the custodianship of Commissioner George P. Bush. In January of 2019, the Alamo plaza was finally reunified, and efforts began to reclaim the historic 1836 Battlefield. The story of the Alamo is world renowned and represents the core of Texas’ identity today. The ongoing effort to restore dignity and reverence to the Alamo is underway.

  • Restoration of the 1836 mission footprint so visitors can learn about history the way it happened, where it happened.
  • Removal of 21st century distractions from the historic mission footprint to pay respect to all those who lived, fought and died at the Alamo.
  • Construction of a world-class museum and visitor center to honor the Shrine of Texas Liberty.
