David S. Castle Architectural Drawings

The David S. Castle Collection contains over 6,500 pages of architectural drawings and blue prints created primarily during the 1st half of the 20th century. Established in Abilene, Texas in 1915, the David S. Castle Company became an extremely successful architecture firm and was responsible for designing many building landmarks in West Texas during the 1920s and 30s. Some Castle buildings are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Although the majority of Castle’s constructions were in Abilene and Midland, he worked extensively throughout West Texas creating plans for schools, courthouses, churches, hospitals, hotels, shopping centers, and movie theaters – with many of these buildings still in use today.
