SAN ANTONIO - After 107 years of service to the Alamo, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas (the Alamo Mission Chapter) have been told to move out of Alamo Hall.
The chapter had earlier lost its custodianship of the historic property amid allegations of mismanagement.
In an email to members the chapter's president said they were asked to vacate in light of the attorney general's scathing report. In the report released last month the DRT was accused of mismanaging money and failing to properly preserve and maintain the Alamo.
The Texas General Land Office now overseas the famous landmark. They told the Express News the chapter could no longer “continue to enjoy free, exclusive, long-term use of state property for private chapter business.”
The chapter also came under scrutiny last month when San Antonio police investigated a reported theft of a copy of the Texas Declaration of Independence from the chapter's office in Alamo Hall.
DRT Chapter President Sharon Skrobarcek said the group would pack up its office on the grounds after the new year.
