The historic former Sweetgrass U.S. Border Inspection Station was constructed with federal Treasury Department funds. The facility was completed in 1936. Since replaced, according to the GSA, “The building was bought and relocated by a private company, and is no longer under federal ownership.” Its current location and status is presently unknown to Living New Deal.

The building shown here still stands. It’s located just east of the current border crossing station.
I don’t believe this border station was ever moved. Instead, the roadway was moved further to the west each time a replacement was built.
