Almo Plaza
Crockett Block

Continue walking west until you reach Alamo Street and stop.

Visitors to Alamo Plaza today see a row of 19th and early 20th century buildings on the location of the old west wall. These structures, however, are historic themselves. Constructed in 1882, the “Crockett Block” was designed by world renowned architect Alfred Giles. Giles’ firm also designed the current vaulted ceiling that was installed on the Alamo Church.
