Inscription.  The commission created by the Texas Legislature in 1935 to oversee Texas' centennial joined with the Public Works Administration to build a memorial to Texas Revolution events in Gonzales. The memorial includes a museum, amphitheatre and reflecting pool designed by acclaimed architects Phelps & Dewees. There is also a monument by Page & Southerland of Austin. The art deco museum is built of shellstone, limestone and concrete. It features a rotunda and ornate detailing at the entryway, and in a band below the parapet. It was dedicated in 1937 with a crowd including Gov. James V. Allred.
