The History Shop
713 East Houston Street
See History Come to LifeTake a piece of history home from this quirky little store across the street from the Alamo. The History Shop specializes in antique maps, pre-1900 weapons, and Texana books. There's also a cool Alamo Diorama that shows the development of Texas from the 1500s to the 1900s and has a spiffy light-and-sound show.
