The owner of this shop had lots of maps for sale, historic items and books for sale. There is also a plexi-glass covered hole where they excavated remains from the battle of the Alamo.

This place is gone or else it has relocated. We tried to visit, but when we found the building it was vacant and the sign for the shop was removed.

Our tour guide recommended this shop for its historic maps, weaponry and its history. Shop owner is very keen to give you as much information as you choose. Diorama donated by Phil Collins with its narration should be viewed before visiting the Alamo. Well worth a visit.

Old maps, antique weapons, and a diorama of The Alamo, narrated by Phil Collins. We bought an 1838 original map of NJ. Owner was very knowledgable.
