World's Smallest Skyscraper

A little trivia to enlarge your brain, enjoy!

Where is the world's smallest skyscraper?
Texas of course, not everything is big here. According to legend a scam artist drew up plans for the building to lure in investors, not telling them that it was scaled in inches instead of feet. After pulling in $200,000.00 the Littlest Skyscraper, as it is now referred to, was built in 1919. Needless to say investors were a bit disappointed when they realized that what they thought to be a 500'+ solid investment turned out to be a mere 10' x 16' 4 story building. The world's smallest sky scraper is located on LaSalle Street in Wichita Falls, Texas and is now called the McMahon Building and houses an antiques shop.
