Dominating Austin's skyline, the Renaissance Revival-style capitol was built in 1888 (Elijah E. Myers) of red granite and limestone. Over 302ft in height, it is taller by more than 14ft than the US Capitol. A four-year building renovation was completed in 1995. Guided tours, departing from the south foyer every 15min, visit the chambers of the state legislature, which meets in odd-numbered years from January through May.
