The Douglas Gray residence in El Paso was designed by Trost & Trost in one of Henry C. Trost’s unique blends of Spanish Revival, Mission and Colonial architecture. The style of this 1904 structure is very, very reminiscent of Trost work in Bisbee and Tucson, Arizona, including the nearly identical Mark Smith residence. The Gray home was designed within 4 years of his Arizona masterpieces, however the unique blend of architecture reflected here was (sadly) never used again by the firm. The home stands today in a somewhat run-down condition. For more information, please see https://www.henrytrost.org/buildings/gray-residence/.
