Austin – Texas State Capitol: Senate Chamber -Dawn at the Alamo

June 16th, 2014

Some cool Senate images:

Austin – Texas State Capitol: Senate Chamber -Dawn at the Alamo
Senate
Image by wallyg
Dawn at the Alamo, one of two paintings by Texas artist Henry Arthur McArdle, anchors the west side of the Senate Chamber. Completed in 1905, the 7-foot by 12-foot oil painting replaced an 1875 version that was destroyed while on display in the Limestone Capitol when it burned in 1881. It is an extremely detailed, although not entirely historically accurate, interpretation of The Battle of the Alamo, a pivotal event during the Texas Revolution. During the course of a 13-day siege in 1836, all but two of the approximately 187 Texians, under the command of James Bowie and William B. Travis, lost their lives defending the fort at the Alamo Mission near San Antonio de Béxar against Mexican General General Santa Anna’s army of more than 5,000 troops. This painting shows the heroic Texians including David Crockett (during his last stand swinging "Old Betsy" protecting women and children–lower right corner), the ill James Bowie (using his trademark knife–lower left corner) and Commander William B. Travis (as he is stabbed in the back–upper right corner). In actuality, Travis, pictured here larger-than-life, was one of the first killed in the battle which occurred on March 6, 1836.

The Senate Chamber, located on the second floor east wing of the Texas State Capitol, is where the thirty-one state senators meet during Texas legislative sessions to work with the House of Representatives enacting the laws of the state. Restored to its c. 1910 appearance, the Senate Chamber still contains the original walnut desks purchased in 1888 for the Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of the Senate and 31 senators from the A. H. Andrews and Company of Chicago. The Lieutenant Governor’s desk is located in front of a reproduction drapery treatment and a mid-nineteenth century portrait of Stephen F. Austin by an unknown artist.

The Texas State Capitol, anchoring 22-acres of landscaped grounds originally designated as Capitol Square in 1839, was designed in 1881 by architect Elijah E. Myers, and was constructed from 1882 to 1888 under the direction of civil engineer Reuben Lindsay Walker. The Italian Renaissance Revival seat of Texas state government houses the two the chambers of the Texas Legislature and the office of the governor.

Menard House ‘Galveston Firsts’ Summer Lecture Series: The Galveston City Company: First Land Development Company in Texas

June 9th, 2014

Menard House ‘Galveston Firsts’ Summer Lecture Series: The Galveston City Company: First Land Development Company in Texas
Event on 2014-08-03 14:00:00

History comes alive as the Galveston Historical Foundation presents the Menard House 'Galveston Firsts' Summer Lecture Series.

Galveston Historical Foundation will honor the 175th anniversary of the City of Galveston with special lectures and tours at the historic Menard Campus, 3302 Avenue O. The lectures will take place at 2 p.m. on Sundays June 1, June 22, July 13 and August 3.

In addition, Galveston’s oldest residential dwelling, the 1838 Menard House, will be opened for public tours.

August 3 – The Galveston City Company: First Land Development Company in Texas

One of the first land development companies west of the Mississippi, the Galveston City Company was organized in 1838 under the leadership of Michel Menard and other founders. The company sold lots for development and gifted others for community projects or important public institutions.

The presentation reveals preliminary findings from a special project undertaken to examine the minutes of the company, communication among stockholders and managers, and descriptive information on the beginnings of Galveston.

The final presentation of the 2014 Menard Summer Lecture series provides a rare look into the archives held by Stewart Title Company, which reveal the first few decades of the island’s history.

Presented by W. Dwayne Jones and Andrew Coleman.

Dwayne Jones serves as the executive director of the Galveston Historical Foundation (GHF), one of the largest not-for-profit historic preservation organizations working at the local level in the country.

Jones holds degrees in History and Asian Studies from Trinity University in San Antonio and a master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from George Washington University in Washington, D.C.  Prior to joining the GHF, Jones served as executive director of Preservation Dallas. He is a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP), received the Dorothy Savage Award for Outstanding Achievement in Historic Preservation from Preservation Dallas and was named an Honorary Member of the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Andrew Coleman is a historian and native Galvestonian.

After receiving his B.A. in History from Tulane University of Louisiana in 2013, he returned to Galveston to work for Galveston Historical Foundation, where he divides his time between the Preservation Conservation Services Department and Bishop’s Palace.

About the 1838 Menard House (pictured above)

Built in 1838 by John and Augustus Allen for the founder of Galveston, Michel Branamour Menard, the property passed between Menard and the Allen brothers (founders of Houston) in many complicated dealings in its early years. It is the oldest surviving residential dwelling in Galveston and the only structure to be owned by the founders of both Galveston and Houston.

For more information on the Menard Summer Lecture Series at Menard Hall or public tours of the 1838 Menard House, call Jami Durham at (409)750-9108 or e mail Jami.Durham@galvestonhistory.org.
