From its beginning as one of the most ambitious construction projects west of the Mississippi, the imposing red granite Lone Star statehouse loomed large in Texas lore. The Texas State Capitol, an iconic landmark, rests on a foundation of election rigging, an unsolved murder, land swaps and pre-dedication blackmail. Join the Austin History Center and local author Mike Cox for an afternoon discussion of the capitol's untold history. Light refreshments will be served and a book signing will follow the free event.
