The new market is entirely fireproof, constructed of heavy pipe welded in position with corrugated metal roof and tile stucco front...floor is concrete, the building is open on all sides, and roll awnings give sun protection. (Weatherford builds a $13,000 public market place, Wise County Messenger, September 19, 1940, p. 7)Yesterday, it was filled with fall produce, flowers, jams and jellies, and about any other food item and more. It is still serving the same purpose as when it was constructed in 1940. You just gotta love that.
