“Reimagining” The Alamo

The plan is to reimagine the Alamo.

“We have to make sure that the story of the Alamo is as powerful in the 21st century as it was in 1836,” Texas Land Commissioner George P Bush told a San Antonio Chamber of Commerce luncheon Wednesday.

To do that, the City of San Antonio and the state have teamed up “to develop a joint master plan, the first of it’s kind, innovation and collaboration, that’s taking place,” he said.

The goal, he said, is to reimagine the Alamo experience.

“We took a big step forward with the purchase of the Crockett, the Woolworth, and the Palace buildings, right across the street from the Alamo,” Bush said.

And lawmakers secured a bunch of money and “a portion of which has already been used to take care of immediate needs for the immediate structural damage that has taken place over time.”

Bush said this is about the past and the future.
