Where was the Alamo in relation to San Antonio?

May 14th, 2015

The building in San Antonio we call the Alamo originally was built as the chapel of the Mission San Antonio de Valero. In its about 300-year existence, the Alamo has played several roles. It has served as the chapel of a Spanish mission; quarters for troops; housing for Indians, Tejanos and squatters; hospital; army supply depot; Masonic lodge; jail; commercial store and warehouse; public park; tourist attraction; movie set; and historic site. To Texans, thus, it will always be "The Alamo — Shrine of Texas Liberty."

The Alamo is now a museum in the Alamo Plaza Historic District of downtown San Antonio, Texas
