Alamo Village has been closed since 2010, due to the death of the owners and now all assets are for sale.

The authentically replicated adobe mission and town took almost two years to complete. The set for the movie “The Alamo,” starring John Wayne, was built in the 1950s by Wayne himself. It was also used for the filming of “Lonesome Dove.” Seventy-two movies, six documentaries, six music videos, and 13 commercials were filmed at Alamo Village. Some of the movies include “Arrowhead” with Charleton Heston, “Two Rode Together” featuring Jimmy Stewart and Richard Widmark, and “Bandolero” with Raquel Welch. One side of the town was created specifically for John Wayne and his movies, and the other side was created for other filming endeavors.
