The South entrance of the Capitol building serves as the departure point for two free guided-walking tours of downtown that help history buffs explore Austin's past.
The 10-block Congress Avenue and nine-block Sixth Street (Pecan Street) National Register Districts interweave modern skyscrapers with 19th century buildings such as the Old Bakery (1876), Millett Opera House (1878), Driskill Hotel (1886), Walter Tips Building (1876) and Robinson-Rosner Building (1856). Historic structures such as St. Mary's Cathedral (1874) and St. David's Church (1854) reflect Old World architecture. The Historic Congress Avenue & Sixth Street tour times are 9 a.m. Tuesday, Thursday-Saturday and 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday and require a reservation 48 hours in advance.
