This is the Nocona Boot Factory in Nocona, Texas. The Justin family started making cowboy boots in Texas in 1879. They eventually moved to Nocona in 1887 because the train came through the town. Miss Enid Justin started Nocona Boots in 1925 after her father passed on and her brothers moved their boot company to Fort Worth.
Boots were made in this factory until 1999 when the factory was moved to El Paso, Texas. This building stands as a reminder of the past. It seems to be still be in remarkable shape considering how long it’s been empty. I didn’t see any broken windows and the lot is well-kept. Read more about Nocona Boots history.
