Conroe's New Monument

Be on the lookout for a new monument! The plans for a new, potentially big Lone Star-themed welcome to the “Birth Place of the Texas Flag” will be revealed soon. As part of the 380 Agreement, the project was passed to Spirit of Texas Bank, which Yates said is nearing completion of its new building at the corner of Lone Star Parkway and Texas 105. At its Conroe complex, a gold-gilded Texas Lady Liberty stands with her eternal flame in Taysha Park. The statue was designed by Conroe sculptor Craig Campobella who also created the bronze bust of Stewart in The Lone Star Monument and Historical Flag Park — where Spirit of Texas continues development on a $100 million-plus project. At the ground-breaking ceremony in September, Spirit of Texas Bank Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Dean Bass confirmed another monument would be created at the Montgomery location in front of the new building.
