Iconic Texas-Shaped Pool

Texas-shaped swimming pool in Plano, Texas

A 168,000-gallon Texas-shaped pool tucked away in Plano is aiming to get a historical landmark title — and maybe a world record. Janet Moos, a PR Director for the nonprofit Texas Pool Foundation says she plans to talk to the Guinness Book of World Records, according to WFAA-TV. The pool was “imagined in 1959 and built in 1961.” Read more about the history behind the Texas Pool on their website.
