LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - The National Ranching Heritage Center hosted a unique event on Wednesday, the Alamo Treasure Roadshow.

The roadshow, which includes a visit to nine cities across Texas, is giving the public a preview of changes coming to the Alamo historical site. One of the biggest changes is the addition of a museum, which is projected to be finished in 2024. People are invited to share their family stories about the Alamo, view historic artifacts, and even share their own historical artifacts.

Bryan Peterson, Communications Director for the Texas General Land Office, tells KCBD:

"If you have an heirloom in your family that connects to Texas history, hopefully connects to the Alamo, we want to hear from you because there's a chance down the road that your artifact, your family heirloom, could be on exhibit at the Alamo."

For more information on the Alamo Treasure Roadshow, their goals, and what major changes the historic landmark will be seeing, head on over to their website.
