The Alamo Plaza Historic District is a historic district of downtown San Antonio in the U.S. state of Texas. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1] It includes the Alamo, which is a separately listed Registered Historic Place and a U.S. National Historic Landmark.

Alamo Plaza's layout and landscaping were designed and supervised by city alderman Anton Wulff, during the late 19th century. In recognition of his work on behalf of the area, local business leaders presented him with a gold-topped walking stick, engraved with words of appreciation.[2]
