A small collection of building stones was gathered by the BEG in the 1940s. It was part of their research to find economic minerals in the state and to select suitable building materials.
The slabs remain in the collection.

The exterior of this structure was built with granite quarried only 50 miles away in the Llano uplift. The same granite theme is retained for the exterior of new state buildings in the vicinity.
