Before the 1852-53 Capitol burned in 1881, the design was already underway for a new, more magnificent statehouse to be built in its place. The owners of Granite Mountain near Burnet offered to donate all of the Texas Sunset Red granite needed for construction in exchange for a railroad extension to be built to help convey the stone from Granite Mountain to the building site. Over the next two years, approximately 50,000 tons of granite was hauled to Capitol Square on the new “Lone Star Engine”. Completed in 1888, the Texas Capitol remains an enduring symbol of liberty for all Texans. Its granite façade can be seen from almost any vantage point in central Austin.

To help commemorate the 130th Anniversary of the Capitol, we bring you this elegantly detailed reproduction of the finest building in Texas. It is crafted with a mixture of granite and resin - the same Texas Sunset Red granite used to build the exterior walls of the Capitol. Recovered during a recent Capitol preservation project, the accompanying piece of granite is our special gift to you. All proceeds support the ongoing preservation and interpretation of the Texas Capitol as well as exhibitions and educational programming at the Bullock Texas State History Museum. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
