GOOD NEWS Remember the Alamo: Fight Is on to Restore Texas Landmark
Following decades of neglect and disrepair, there is a push to give the Alamo a much-needed makeover.
The State of Texas and the city of San Antonio are joining forces to help restore the landmark, which reportedly is suffering from rotting beams, cracked, leaky roofs and increasing moisture on the walls.
On "America's News Headquarters," Becky Dinnin, executive director of the Alamo, said that they are finishing studies on conservation and preservation regarding the 300-year-old building.
"It's actually an exciting time for us to go back in and use current technology to be able to help us find what really needs to be done, prioritize that and then put in some resources into that to be sure that the Alamo is here 300 years from now," Dinnin said.
"We want to develop a museum and visitors center that's worthy of the Alamo and the Alamo story."
