Construction of the Texas State Capitol building in Austin began in 1882 and was completed in 1888 by contractor Abner Taylor. The Capitol building was designed by architect Elija E. Myers who won a competition held by the Texas State government in the late 1870’s. Created in the Renaissance Revival style with 15th century Italian influences, classical order, round arches and symmetrical composition, the Capitol was designated a National historic Landmark in 1986. The foundation is laid of local limestone, and the exterior walls are of “Sunset Red” granite quarried near Marble Falls, Texas. The Lady Liberty on top of the copula, 310 feet, reaches almost 15 feet higher than the nation’s Capitol building in Washington D.C.
