This 1966 home movie captures the Baskett family on vacation at Alamo Village in Brackettville. The popular tourist destination is a former movie set on the ranch of James T. “Happy” Shahan. Featuring a three-quarter-scale replica of the Alamo compound, the village was built for John Wayne’s The Alamo (1960). Turned into a tourist attraction after production wrapped, the site was subsequently used in over 100 other westerns. The second half of the film shows the family camping and enjoying outdoor recreational activities at a river and park.
