Elks Building - Trost Society

Elks Building

The Elks Club building in Albuquerque was designed by Trost & Trost and erected in 1915, with Trost associate George P. Hill as supervising architect.

Quoting researchers Lloyd C. and June F. Engelbrecht (edited): “Only the main building on the left side of the architectural drawings were built. According to Carleen Lazzell, Albuquerque preservationist, the Elks building was built on the site of the San Felipe hotel, which burned, and the old foundation was used for the Elks. A letter of January 8, 1916 in the El Paso Public Library Ponsford files states starting with an old building, you succeeded in rearranging it so as to give us the finest Club Building in the Southwest. The site is now the Chavez Federal Office Building.”

The structure has long been demolished. For more information please see https://www.henrytrost.org/buildings/elks-building-albuquerque/
