F. W. Woolworth (Spence) Building - Trost Society

F. W. Woolworth (Spence) Building

In 1907, Frank A. Spence a real-estate developer in El Paso hired the firm of Trost & Trost to design a three story building at the southwest corner of Second (now Paisano) and Stanton Street. It was completed in 1912 in a simple Commercial style.

Currently it is the home of BPL Plasma, who remodeled both the interior and exterior of the building in mid-to-late 2018. The entire exterior Trost design with Trost’s signature brickwork has been lost.
