The long-time tenant of two buildings across from the Alamo has agreed to terminate its lease to make way for a museum and visitors center for the historic site as part of a multimillion redevelopment of Alamo Plaza, Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced Wednesday .

Phillips Entertainment Inc., which owns and operates Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, Guinness World Records Museum and Tomb Rider 3D Adventure Ride and Arcade, will cease operations by Sept. 1 and vacate the Woolworth and Palace buildings by Oct. 31, according to a General Land Office press release.

Phillips’ businesses occupy a significant portion of the buildings, but there are still some tenants with active leases within them.
