McAllen, Texas – The Alamo invites Texans to learn about ongoing preservation work happening at the state’s most well-known historic site and to share their own family stories, documents, and artifacts related to Texas history and the Texas Revolution.

The Alamo Roadshow is an opportunity for history enthusiasts to learn more about the plan to preserve the Alamo and to build the state’s largest Texas Revolution museum. All the “treasures” attendees bring to the events will be documented by the Alamo team, and could help shape the future of exhibits and historical interpretation at the Alamo.

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.

Join the Alamo at one of the Alamo Treasure Roadshows locations across Texas. All events begin at 6:00 p.m. local time.

•Monday, April 30: McAllen Convention Center, Meeting Room-102-ABC, 700

“I encourage local historians and anyone with knowledge or artifacts about their ancestors’ participation in helping to shape Texas history to attend this event and share their information, as well as learn more about the Alamo,” said City of McAllen Mayor Jim Darling.
