Construction of this building, which served as the focal point of the 1936 Texas Centennial Central Exposition, was approved by the State Legislature to be "Texanic in proportion and Centennial in character."

Completed during the 1930s Depression, it is one of the best examples of Art Deco architecture in Texas. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1980
