Former President George W. Bush has broken ground on his presidential center in Dallas, joined by former Vice President Dick Cheney and ex-Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice.
More than 3,000 people, including friends, supporters and former administrations officials, attended the groundbreaking Tuesday for the George W. Bush Presidential Center on the campus of Southern Methodist University in Dallas.
The center, which will include a library and a policy institute, is expected to be open by February 2013.
The center, which will be about 227,000-square feet, will be a modern brick and limestone building. It will be set amid a Texas-inspired landscape, including wildflowers and prairies.
