The Brazos Apartment building was completed in 1905, designed by Trost & Trost. One of Trost’s more iconic and recognized buildings of the day, it was demolished to make way for a Bank building in the late 1970s. Interestingly, the replacement building mimics the structure of the Trost design without including any of its design elements. For more information, please see
