Reserved for SALHA by the City of San Antonio for “Alamo Plaza Heritage Interpretation”

Starting in 2012, the San Antonio City Council approved an ordinance authorizing the San Antonio Living History Association to present monthly programs called “Visits to the Past” for visiting residents, students, and heritage tourists in Alamo Plaza, the city-owned portion of the national historical landmark that is the Alamo.  Working in collaboration with the City Downtown Operations Department,

SALHA also presents living history reenactment events in Alamo Plaza in February and March, with the “Beginning of the Alamo Siege” on the last Saturday in February from 9:00AM to 5:00PM.  Each March 6th, the anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo, SALHA presents the “Dawn At The Alamo”© commemorative ceremony from 5:00 to 7:00AM.   “Dawn At The Alamo”© is a prelude to the “Remembering The Alamo” Weekend©.

On March 7th & 8th, 2015, SALHA will present the “Remembering The Alamo” Weekend© on Saturday and Sunday from 10:00AM to 5:00PM.  In conformity with the “Alamo Plaza Heritage Interpretation” agreement, SALHA plans to expand its membership and community outreach programs to include interpretation of Spanish Colonial and other City of San Antonio historical eras and sites.

As a result, our all-volunteer nonprofit organization invites and is seeking new community members and corporate sponsorship for all its educational programs and events.  Interested sponsors and new membership inquires are invited to contact (210) 273-1730 or visit SALHA at http://www.SALHA.org/membership/ .

Currently, SALHA depends on audience donations at each event to help support the continuation of its free public programs and productions.
