Camp Mabry sits inside the Austin city limits just west of downtown, three miles from the State Capitol Building off Mopac Expressway. It is the headquarters of the State Military Forces which include the Texas Air National Guard, the Texas Army National Guard, and the Texas State Guard.
Camp Mabry in northwest Austin was established in the 1890s and named in honor of Woodford Mabry, the adjutant general of Texas from 1891 to 1898. During World War 1, the United States used the camp as a training center and built barracks and administration buildings. During World War II the camp was used as an engine rebuilding station for the troops abroad. The camp encompasses 375 acres and the building space is 700,000 square feet. Camp Mabry has also operated an ICAO recognized weather station since 1898. Camp Mabry was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1996.
