Authorized by the Post- Reconstruction Constitution of 1875, the Texas capitol was designed by architect Elijah E. Myers of Detroit in 1881 and finally dedicated in 1888 after several design changes, including the exterior stone. Winner of a nationwide competition, the elongated Greek cross plan exhibits "beaux arts" classicism and was heavily influenced by Soufflot’s late Renaissance Pantheon in Paris and Thomas O. Walter’s 1865 cast iron dome addition to the U.S. Capitol. Billed as the seventh largest building in the world, it housed all offices of state government except the land office and was paid for with 3,025,000 acres of public land - part of Texas’ unique 47,000,000 acre legacy gained from the Compromise of 1850, five years after statehood.
