Check out the Alamo, a historic mission and site of one of the most famous battles in American history.
Originally a Spanish mission era church from 1755-1793, the Alamo was built to educate native americans about Christianity but was eventually abandoned. The compound on which the Alamo exists has undergone many changes and has served many roles in it's 300+ year history. While some traces of its role in the epic 1836 Battle of the Alamo still exist, changes to the structure reflect its later role as a U.S. Army Quartermaster Depot warehouse and eventually a memorial to Alamo defenders.
