For the Alamo Image


Envision seeing outdoor exhibits honoring Crockett's palisade, the south gate and lunette, the 18-pounder cannon ramp from which Travis answered Santa Anna's demand for surrender, and the north wall. Picture exhibits covering the battle and the mission period, through the Alamo's military arsenal period to the present. The Alamo preservation and restoration plan makes all of this possible. The preservation and restoration plan also lowers the current surface in the historic footprint about 18 inches to the historic grade, both preserving the Alamo from rising damp and clearly marking where history happened.
