Facts

  • The Texas State Capitol Extension is 65 feet deep.
  • The Capitol Extension was built to add additional space that was badly needed. The building was built below ground on the North side of the Capitol so it wouldn't interfere with the historical Capitol and the look of the Capitol grounds.
  • There is a 350 seat auditorium, which is the largest room in the Capitol Extension.
  • The building is connected to the original 1888 Capitol by 3 underground pedestrian walkways. The Capitol Extension is open to the public and is accessable by elevators in the main Capitol Building.
  • There is an open-air rotunda which is the same size as the rotunda in the Main Capitol Building. It's 60 feet in diameter and features a star and the word "Texas" around it. It is similar to the star on the ceiling of the dome of the Texas State Capitol.
