Precisely, the address of this building is 411 Elm Street. This land was originally owned by John Neely Bryan. In 1894, Rock Island Plow company purchased the site and constructed a five-story building four years later. In 1901, lighting stuck and burned almost to the ground resulted it to be rebuilt in 1903. Erected in Romanaesque Revival Style, the building was expanded to seven stories like what we see today.
On 22 November 1963, the former US Marine Lee Harvey Oswald who worked as temporarily staff in the building fired rifle shots from six-floor into President John F. Kennedy's motorcade.
In 1977, the government of Dallas County bought the premise and use for administration. Sixth floor is put as the exhibition center on the life, death and legacy of President John F. Kennedy featuring photographs, artifacts, historic film and audio tour. Seventh floor serves as a gallery with rotating exhibits throughout the year.
Today, this building is recorded under Texas Historic Landmark.
