This 1961 International Style building was designed by local architect Earle A. Deits to provide office space for El Paso County. The search for additional space had begun in 1935, and consideration was given to demolishing the El Paso County Courthouse (now the City's Pioneers Museum). However, this site, having been acquired by the County in 1939, was selected. Plans were published in January 1957.
The building is built entirely of concrete, except for steel reinforcing, with the north and south walls clad in anodized, gold-colored aluminum. State Register eligible.
