No matter how much the downtown landscape changes, this is the one building we can always count on to stay the same. Built in the late 19th century of native pink granite quarried near Llano, it was lovingly renovated and expanded in the late 20th century. Music venues, garish downtown officeplexes, and dot-com ventures may all come and go, but the dome of this stately edifice remains the crown jewel in the Austin skyline, the compass point that lets us know we're home.
