In Williams Square, in the heart of the Irving community of Las Colinas, is the largest horse sculpture in the world and the city's best-known landmark. The "Mustangs at Las Colinas"—nine larger-than-life bronze mustangs running through a granite stream—depicts the magnificent wild horses that once inhabited Texas. Learn about the sculpture and artist at an adjacent museum. The nearby Ruth Paine House Museum is a suburban home where Lee Harvey Oswald spent the night before he assassinated President Kennedy, and the property has been restored to its appearance on that fateful day.
