Photo of The General Land Office building on the Capitol Grounds

The Capitol Visitors Center is located

at 112 East 11th Street (southeast corner

of the Capitol grounds) in the restored

1856-57 General Land Office building.

The three-story castle-like structure

reflects the mid-19th century mock-

medieval revival architectural style and

is the oldest state office building in Texas.


The contents of this site are also available in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Italian, Russian, Spanish and Korean.
