  1. Alamo

    Alamo, Texas, in what is nicknamed the "Land of Two Summers," is a town in the irrigated area of southern Hidalgo County, Texas. This town was incorporated in 1924, and it was named for the Alamo Land and Sugar Company, not the famous Texas Alamo Mission, 240 miles to the north. The town is located in an area of abundant vegetable farming and citrus groves, and it is a noted winter resort/retirement town near the Mexico-U.S. border. Alamo is also one of the Rio Grande Valley's gateways to Mexico, via U.S. Route 281 and Nuevo Progreso, Tamaulipas. Alamo's population was just 18,353 at the time of the 2010 U.S. Census. Alamo is part of the McAllen–Edinburg–Mission and Reynosa–McAllen metropolitan areas.

Examples of ALAMO in a Sentence

  1. City Councilman Joe Krier:

    We need for Alamo Plaza to have the kind of reverence and respect for history that we see in places like the battlefield at Gettysburg and at the monuments at Pearl Harbor.

  2. Benjamin Risha:

    He was made to smack his mother, he had to do it three times before the smacks were loud enough for Tony Alamo to approve of them … His control was absolute. No one told him no. It was pretty horrible. Something as simple as falling asleep in church could get you in trouble, even though it was the third time you ’d been at church that day, and you had already worked and gone to school and prayed for several hours. We would be nodding off. But if someone went to sleep ? God forbid you got caught. It was pretty bad … I wanted to know what life was like beyond this.

  3. Greg Abbott:

    Stop political correctness in our schools. Of course Texas schoolchildren should be taught that Alamo defenders were ‘ Heroic ’ ! i fully expect the State Board of Education to agree. Contact your SBOE Member to complain.

  4. Kim Barker:

    What the Spanish intended was that the Mission be the seed of a community. So it was a success, we need to respect that, at the end of the day, it did its job. It is in the middle of a very large city. And that is also part of the story of the Alamo.

  5. Sarah Gould:

    Other than the Alamo, which has had quite a bit of changes to it, the other four are in really wonderful condition.
