Today in Texas History – October 19

From the Annals of the State Fair – In 2012, the iconic Big Tex statue was destroyed by an electrical fire that started in his right boot and worked its way up the structure, first becoming visible from the neck area. After the fire, a new Big Tex was created by SRO Associates and Texas Scenic Co. for the 2013 State Fair.
