Best Historic Structure

The Nineties have been kind to our glowing symbol of Texas liberty. The early part of the decade saw the renovation of her brilliant pink dome. In mid-decade, services and sightseeing points were enhanced with the addition of the north wing's Capitol Extension. Last year, the grounds themselves, including all monuments and fountains were scrubbed, re-planted, re-created, moved, or retrofitted to create a magical parkland for all citizens who heed the call to "Go to Texas" to enjoy and call our own. May the Goddess of Liberty shine brightly from her post high atop our fair city forever more.
