Photographer's Note:
Along with the date of county organization (1875) and the date San Angelo was incorporated (1903), there is a statement on the front of the parapet roof over the entrance that reads: "To the memory of the heroic pioneers of West Texas, this building is dedicated. Men's homage and their love shall never cease to follow them." - Terry Jeanson
