In the early 1880’s, a significant event happened in Texas history. The State Capitol building in Austin caught fire and burned to the ground. The plans to rebuild it called for pink granite to be brought in from Granite Mountain in nearby Burnet County. Unfortunately, as the Austin-bound trains chugged across the trestle over Brushy Creek with their heavy-laden flatcars, some of the massive blocks tumbled off. They were left in the creekbed where they fell and are still there, along this section of what is now the Brushy Creek Regional Trail in Cedar Park. #TexasHistory #AustinStateCapitol #History #Austin #FascinatingSuburbsOfAustin #AustinTX #CedarPark #TexasHillCountry #BrushyCreek #BrushyCreekRegionalTrail
