Did you know...
Before it was a state capital, Austin (then named Waterloo) was the national capital of the Republic of Texas. The University of Texas, the state's largest campus with nearly 50,000 students, is here. Built on hills overlooking the Colorado River Valley, Austin is a handsome, cultured city, illuminated at night with mercury vapor lights on 165-ft. towers installed in 1895.
