We just can't hide our Texan pride. No, really: State law limits the height of building projects in areas surrounding the historic dome (completed in 1888) so that its majesty can stay visible from many observation points around the city. Free guided tours help make the interior easy to view as well, that is, if you can ever stop basking in the legislated view.
