At the crossroads of Texas history for over 300 years, the Alamo must be preserved for future generations. But these historic buildings in the midst of a bustling, modern city face constant threats to their survival.
The preservation of the Alamo church and Long Barrack is a priority to ensure the story of the Alamo continues to be told. Conservation of the Alamo church and Long Barrack involves appropriate consolidation and cleaning treatments, detailed photographic documentation, written documentation, microscopic analysis and injections of hydraulic mortars where blind voids exist.
Structural preservation efforts under way at the Alamo church seek not to restore the building to how it looked during a certain time period, but to preserve the structure as it is today and reduce threats from erosion or deterioration. Repairs must be carried out when needed to prevent deterioration and to keep the building stable and preserved.
