Texas State Capitol

Texas State Capitol

Does it surprise you at all to learn that the Texas State Capitol, completed in 1888, is taller than the U.S. Capitol? The famous red-granite dome makes for some beautiful photos. Inside, capture yourself in the rotunda or with portraits of Texas governors and presidents of the Republic of Texas.
