Due to a need for a new and larger capital building, In 1876, three million acres of land were set aside in the panhandle to find construction of the fourth state capital building of Texas. The Texas State Capital Building was constructed from 1882 to 1886, and serves as the capital building to this day.
In 1905, a statue of Sam Houston was donated to the National Sanctuary Hall, of the United States Congress building.
