Located in the heart of San Antonio, the Alamo stands as a shrine to Texas Liberty. Alamo Trust, Inc., or the Alamo, tells the story of Texas Independence as part of its rich and diverse 300-year history to over 1.6 million visitors every year and is the #1 most visited destination in the state of Texas. In 1960, the Alamo was designated a United States National Historic Landmark, and in 2015, it became part of the Lone Star State's only UNESCO World Heritage Site. The story of the Alamo is world renowned, and plans are underway to restore reverence and dignity through the Alamo Plan.
The Alamo belongs to the people of Texas. In 2011, the Texas Legislature designated the Texas General Land Office (GLO) the custodian of the Alamo on behalf of the people of Texas. The GLO contracts with Alamo Trust, Inc. (ATI) to manage the day-to-day operations and staff at the Alamo. ATI is a non-profit charitable organization under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). The mission of ATI is to preserve the Alamo, the Shrine of Texas Liberty, and bring its own unique story to life.
