The whole time I've lived in Abilene, I've seen some buildings that really catch my eye. Some of which I ask "why is that building vacant?" or "what were they thinking?" or better yet, "I'd love to own and live in that one!"

Some of these buildings are absolutely legendary to locals and some you may not have ever seen before. Check out the gallery and let me know what others should be added to this list.

Which Building Would I Love To Live In?

Abilene and the Big Country is lucky in the sense, we have some very historic, unique, and or interestingly built buildings. While I have not been in all of them I have had the pleasure of going inside many of them. One of which I would buy if I won the lottery is Kasimirs Mansion at the corner of Meadow Drive and Buffalo Gap Road.

But, what really gets me, is when someone buys a unique and or "historic" building they go off and change it completely. The historic buildings should be (in my opinion) restored and allow us all to visit, tour, and or appreciate them in some way.

Here's a little interesting and useless info for you.

The "Dome Home", and others like it, became extremely popular in the 70s and 80s because of their energy efficiency. Too bad they didn't really catch on later because I'd love to live in one.

The iconic (and at times silly) toys, technologies, and electronics have been usurped since their grand entrance, either by advances in technology or breakthroughs in common sense. See how many things on this list trigger childhood memories—and which ones were here and gone so fast you missed them entirely.
