Austin Downtown History

For those of you who are new to Austin, make sure to visit sites that show off our rich and proud Texas History.  Most notably, Austin is of course the capitol of Texas.  The Capitol Building is the most prominent building in the downtown area.  Take the time to visit the rotunda, and marvel at the building’s architecture.  Make sure to visit the Bob Bullock Museum.  The museum was named after former Lt. Governor Bob Bullock, who was the driving force behind the creation of the Texas State History Museum.  No matter your walk of life, take ownership of the rich heritage Texans share.Texas Capitol Building
