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.

Had a business trip to Wichita Falls, TX in May and during lunch at Gidget's Sandwich Shop we took a hop, skip and jump over to the skyscraper. We did not go inside but did take photos with and of it!

While taking visitors downtown to catch a bite to eat, we always enjoy visiting the worlds smallest skyscraper.

How very interesting to find this in Wichita Falls, Texas! It's a charming little building... a shrunken-looking version of a skyscraper. Turns out, investors were fooled... they thought it would be a full-scale skyscraper (but didn't pay attention to the blueprint dimensions/scale). Check it out...More
