The Alamo’s Statewide Roadshow Coming to College Station

Join the Alamo at locations across the state to discuss the future of the Shrine of Texas Liberty

Attendees will also be invited to bring historic artifacts and family treasures to discuss with historians and curatorial staff

SAN ANTONIO – The Alamo is on the road for a statewide tour across Texas, stopping in College Station on Tuesday, April 24. The Alamo Roadshow is stopping in ten cities, inviting Texans to learn about ongoing preservation work happening at the state’s most well-known historic site and include opportunities to share their own family stories, documents, and artifacts related to the Texas Revolution. Roadshow organizers will be gathering feedback from attendees on their thoughts and suggestions for the future of the Alamo.

“The Alamo Roadshow is an opportunity for history enthusiasts to learn about the plan to preserve the Alamo and to build the state’s largest Texas Revolution museum, as well as to share their own artifacts and historic family treasures,” said Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush. “I invite all Texans to join us for an evening of discussion of preservation and Texas history.”

The roadshow kicked off April 9 in West Texas, making stops in El Paso, Midland, Lubbock, and Abilene, before continuing to other areas of the state throughout the month. Historians and curatorial staff from the Alamo and the General Land Office (GLO) will be on hand to help attendees evaluate and document stories and artifacts. Roadshow presenters will also bring several artifacts from the Alamo and GLO Archives that will someday appear in exhibits in the forthcoming Alamo Museum and Visitor’s Center.


WHO: Alamo and Texas General Land Office team members
WHAT: Alamo Roadshow
WHEN: Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at 6 p.m.
WHERE: George Bush Presidential Library and Museum Orientation Theater

1000 George Bush Drive West, College Station, TX 77845)

WHY: Tour to update Texans on ongoing preservation work at the Alamo and inviting them to share their own family stories, documents, and artifacts related to Texas history and the Texas Revolution.


Additional details can be found at www.TheAlamo.org.

“As we begin to make plans for future exhibits and programming, and a museum to house the Alamo’s collection, we want to invite all Texans to share their unique stories and connections to the Alamo and Texas history,” said Alamo CEO Doug McDonald. “Whether it’s a direct descendant of the Old Three Hundred, an artifact of the Texas Revolution, or a family heirloom related to Texas history, our goal is to send our curatorial professionals throughout Texas to help document and share those stories with everyone who loves Texas history. These stories are part of the Alamo’s story, and could help shape the way we think about historical interpretation at the Alamo in the future.”

The Alamo will be sharing updates from the road all month long. Follow along with the Alamo Treasures Tour on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @OfficialAlamo, #AlamoRoadshow.
