​​​SAN ANTONIO - The Texas General Land Office is buying three major historic buildings across from the Alamo, raising the potential for a plaza renovation or a new museum to house artifacts.

The agency is under contract to buy the Woolworth, Palace and Crockett buildings at 518 E. Houston St., 319 Alamo Plaza and 321 Alamo Plaza.

The seller is Service Life and Casualty Insurance Co. of Austin.

All three buildings, among several others on the plaza, stand within the original footprint of the Alamo.

The Land Office has committed to working jointly with the city, which owns Alamo Plaza, to develop a master plan for the Alamo and the plaza, with completion expected in less than a year.

The Legislature this year appropriated $31.5 million as a starting point for the historic mission and battle site, including $25 million for the master plan process and projects resulting from the plan.
