Significance: Constructed in 1933-34 under the U.S. Treasury Department, the U.S. Inspection Station Complex exemplifies Spanish Colonial Revival architecture as interpreted by the Depression-era federal building program. The U.S. Inspection Station also continues to reflect the implementation of U.S. Policies for international political relations and economic trade since its establishment. In addition, the function of the U.S. Inspection Station as an immigration port of entry has had a direct impact and influence on the Hispanic ethnic heritage of the region and new citizens of Hispanic and Chinese heritage.
