El Paso County Courthouse – Liberty Hall

The El Paso County Courthouse and its accompanying Liberty Hall was a monumental Classical Revival structure built in 1915 and designed by Trost & Trost. It was one of the El Paso firm’s most famous buildings nationally, and was Trost’s largest career Classical Revival building. The structure, which was built in a whirlwind of controversy, was demolished in 1988. For the complete story of its erection, including the narrative describing the controversial nature of how the architects were chosen, please see https://www.facebook.com/TrostSociety/posts/3151928888258489
