San Angelo in Tom Green County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
O.C. Fisher Federal Building and United States Courthouse
Completed in 1911 and expanded in 1932, the O.C. Fisher Federal Building has continuously served the citizens of San Angelo and surrounding communities. This edifice was originally built to house the city's main post office and the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Its high-style Italian Renaissance Revival architecture reflects the 1909 design work of the U.S. Treasury Department under architect James Knox Taylor. Today, it bears the name of San Angelo lawyer O.C. Fisher who served the community as county attorney, state legislature, and U.S. congressman for 32 years.
