We drove past it and took a quick photo while sight seeing. I don't know why they call it a skyscraper but its quaint and cute. Neat little building to get a pic of.

Easy to find & plenty of places around to park. I love the story behind the building, cool little picture stop. Can't go in or anything, but worth a quick stop.

Really not much to see. interesting story, but still just a small building. The building next-door is only a one story and it comes to about the middle of the second floor of the skyscraper.
