World's Smallest Skyscraper, Wichita Falls, Texas

Just off a bit from the main downtown area of Wichita Falls, Texas is the world's smallest skyscraper.  The Newby-McMahon Building was built in 1919 and its diminutive size is the outcome of a fraudulent investment scheme following a 1918 oil boom.
