HOUSTON (AP) – A group that served as guardian of the Alamo for more than a century and the Texas General Land Office have settled a dispute over ownership of about 38,000 books and artifacts that had been kept at the Texas shrine.

The Daughters of the Republic of Texas filed suit last year after the agency headed by George P. Bush declared the state owned of the organization’s private library collection. Bush already had announced he was ending the group’s management of the downtown San Antonio landmark.

Under terms of an agreement reached Friday, the state agency drops any ownership claims to the library collection and pays $200,000 to cover legal fees of the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

The books and artifacts are being moved to Texas A&M University-San Antonio.
