I really love visiting the capitol to get a sense of Texas history. It was built right at the cusp of new innovations like electric lighting, and it's fun to see how Texans of that time viewed the excitement of technological advances. You get a good sense of what makes Texans Texan. The grounds surrounding are also beautiful and a great (free!) place to have a picnic or read a book. Seminarians have gathered there in solidarity with women, immigrants, and those experiencing loss through suicide. We also go to learn more about our community.
