This photography exhibit explores the story of Austin’s founding as the capital of Texas. Learn about the first permanent settlers to the area and President Mirabeau Lamar’s vision for a Texas empire that led to the capital moving here, and see some of the earliest views of Austin. Photographs of the downtown skyline taken at 25-year intervals illustrate Austin’s growth from cabins to skyscrapers as the 11th-largest city in the United States.
