The Capitol building stands on an 11-acre site that includes the Texas State Cemetery and a monument marking the spot where Stephen F. Austin signed the Texas Declaration of Independence in 1836. The capitol dome was constructed from steel shipped from Pittsburgh and iron from Virginia, while stone came from Quarry Hill, a quarry near Austin. A statue of Lady Justice is located at the corner of Guadalupe Street and Brazos Street, just opposite to Government Plaza.
