Open wide The kids got a kick out of this hole which consisted of a whale pooping the golf ball that it swallows. (Photo by Austin Explorer) Standing tall This Tyrannosaurus Rex is near the end of one of the rounds and is a signature character for the golf course. (Photo by Austin Explorer)

Twenty-first century Austin has a reputation as a quirky, hip, culturally-diverse town that’s home to the world-famous South-by-Southwest music festival and the University of Texas Longhorns. It’s come a long way since Spanish explorers arrived circa 1709. Austin Then and Now rounds up all of the hot spots in a unique photographic history of Texas’ capital city.

• When Mirabeau Lamar succeeded Sam Houston as the President of the Republic of Texas, he moved the capital from Houston to Austin. The State Capitol that was eventually built in 1888 remains the largest statehouse in the U.S.

• Students will get a kick out of the side-by-side then-and-now photos of the University of Texas Tower and Main building — what was once a humble single building on 40 acres is now one of the largest public universities in the United States.

• Austin’s Driskill Hotel, one of the finest Victorian hotels in the west, has long been a destination for famous Texans. Former President Lyndon B. Johnson took Lady Bird to the Driskill on their first date!

• Austin’s most famous landmarks are featured, including the O. Henry House, the French Legation, the Governor’s Mansion, and other locations beloved by Texans.
