Old TI Plant

No picture today, nor even an address. Something a bit different.

Now the University Services Building (not to be confused with the General Services Complex building at TAMU, nor the Special Services Building) is a thoroughly unimpressive warehouse located in a somewhat secluded area, which I know primarily as the place where you can find lots of animals preserved in glass jars (I went there for a field trip in eighth grade...), but at one time, it actually assembled computers for Texas Instruments (back when they made computers), though TI closed the plant after only about six years (1980-1986).


It's worth noting the Cypress plant wasn't closed in the 1980s after all--it survived until about a year and a half ago.
