About The Alamo Trust

Located in the heart of downtown San Antonio, the Alamo stands as a shrine to Texas Liberty. Visitors pay homage to the heroes of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo, a defining moment in Texas History. The Alamo tells that story of Texas independence, as part of its 300 year history to over 1.6 million visitors every year.

The Alamo belongs to the people of Texas. In 2011, the Texas Legislature and Gov. Rick Perry designated the Texas General Land Office (GLO) the custodian of the Alamo on behalf of the people of Texas. The General Land Office contracts with Alamo Trust staff to care for the Alamo grounds and historic structures, develop educational programs for visitors, and tell the story of the 1836 Battle of the Alamo and its role in Texas history.

Land Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge the indigenous people on whose historic lands Mission San Antonio de Valero, known today as the Alamo, was built. Dozens of Native American tribes and indigenous family bands inhabited this region prior to the building of Mission de Valero and continue to live in San Antonio, the broader United States, and Northern Mexico. These include bands of the Coahuiltecan language group, including the Payaya, Xarame, and Hierbipiamo; bands of the Sana language group; Karankawan-speaking bands; Apaches, including the Lipan Apache and the Ypandi; the Comanche; the Wichita; the Tonkawa; and many other indigenous groups. I ask you to join me in acknowledging these indigenous communities, their elders both past and present, as well as future generations. San Antonio enjoys a rich and culturally diverse heritage thanks to the indigenous people who once lived here and we wish to thank them for their many contributions to this city we all call home.
