Although there is not much to do in the town, this is a quick visit, but has a funny story. If you go into the store inside and if the right employees are working, they will tell you the hilarious story of the littlest skyscraper....More

The story behind this place is pretty cool. The first floor is now an antique and boutique store and the people working there are very nice. They'll give you the history of the building. A must see if you're in Wichita Falls.

We drove past it and took a quick photo while sight seeing. I don't know why they call it a skyscraper but its quaint and cute. Neat little building to get a pic of.

Builder conned investors by not drawing building plans to normal specs as he subbed in 1 inch instead of 1 foot. Cool little bldg

Kind of odd that they call it a skyscraper. Looks like your average 4 story building to me. I don't see what all the fuss is about.

Easy to find & plenty of places around to park. I love the story behind the building, cool little picture stop. Can't go in or anything, but worth a quick stop.

Really not much to see. interesting story, but still just a small building. The building next-door is only a one story and it comes to about the middle of the second floor of the skyscraper.
