Taylor County Welfare Building
The Works Progress Administration built the Taylor County Agriculture Building in Abilene, Texas between 1938 and 1939. The building then became the Taylor County Welfare Office for a number of years. The building’s current use is unknown.
Anecdotes tell that the stone in the building came from Abilene’s 1895 jail. The jail was demolished as another WPA project.
