Capitol, Austin: 21 reviews and 39 photos
Favorite thing: I personally liked this Texas Cowboy Monument, a tribute to the "rough and romantic riders of the range." Maybe that's because I tend to be a little rough, romantic and rangey myself. GRIN!
The bronze statue was presented to the State of Texas by Constance Whitney, the notable American sculptor. It represents the artist's portrayal of a typical Texas cowboy riding a rearing horse. Texas is known as the "native home of the cowboy." The monument was unveiled by Governor Pat M. Neff on January 17, 1925.
