The former U.S. Inspection Station at the Mexican border south of Sasabe, Arizona (along Route 286) was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds during the 1930s.

    I work for CBP and am doing a Customs History video for the 225th year of Customs. The Port of Sasabe is one of the ports in the video. The structure still exists. It has been added to, but the original is still being used by CBP Officers. I’m happy I found some original photos here for my project. Thanks!
