With its brilliant lights and decorations, the holiday tree at the south entrance of the Texas State Capitol is the beautiful centerpiece of the festivities in downtown Austin. The tradition dates back to 1914, when "the mightiest cedar in Travis County" had the honor of becoming the first community tree in the Lone Star State. Over a century later, the annual tradition continues with careful planning, scouting, and selection of towering Texas pines, delivered by horse-drawn carriage and presented to the governor, lieutenant governor and Speaker of the House. The indoor trees displayed in the House and Senate Chambers of the Texas State Capitol are decorated by the legislators and their staff with ornaments from their districts.

Twenty-first in the much-loved series of annual Texas Capitol Ornaments, our 2016 ornament is a beacon of holiday peace, joy, and reflection. Featuring 24-karat gold overlay and a gold ribbon for hanging, it's perfect for giving in a specially designed velvet-lined box. All proceeds support continued preservation of the Texas State Capitol and educational projects. Polish with a soft, dry cloth. Made in USA.
