Significance: El Globo Nuevo is typical of nineteenth-century Rio Grande Valley commercial structures whose plain brick facades are highlighted by denticulated cornices and openings grouped into bays by simple pilasters. The first of several sections was completed in 1897, and the rest of the structure was completed before 1914. This complex was one of several locations of El Globo stores run by the Garza brothers, two Mexican citizens who live in Brownsville.
