  • What is the history of the building?

    The Alamo began as a Spanish mission constructed sometime in the 18th century.  In the late 1700's it was abandoned before becoming an outpost for Spanish and then Mexican troops. The Battle of the Alamo in 1836 was a turning point that eventually brought the building into the hands of Texas.
