Texas State Capitol

In April 2016 my daughter and I decided to do a self-guided tour the largest state capitol building in the United States.  The red granite building is beautiful on the outside but even more beautiful on the inside, starting with the Capitol dome with the Texas star in the center…

To the Rotunda floor with six seals representing the six flags that have flown over the state…

These are the United States, Spain, France, Mexico, Texas under the Confederacy, and the seal in the center represents Texas as a Republic.

 

Next the beautiful Senate Chamber…

 

And a few other miscellaneous photos…

So much beautiful wood everywhere!  I can see why visiting the Texas Capitol is the #1 Best Thing to Do in Austin according to Trip Advisor.
