    I don't know exactly when this place was built, but I can assure you it was quite some time ago. Before the onset of the Interstate Highway System, US Hwy 81 and US Hwy 77 were the main routes into Ft Worth and Dallas from the south. Much like I35W and I 35E merge in Hillsboro now, these old Hwy did the same. This building is built very near the spot they used to merge at. This building was actually built over a creek and you can still access the tunnel. There is also an old bridge behind the building from the old highway.

     Future Plans
    Probably none, as Hillsboro is growing primarily on the Interstate now. (Although the old town area is much cooler)
