Holy Cross Sanatorium

The U.S. Army maintained a World War 1 Training facility outside Deming, New Mexico, called Camp Cody. In 1922, 320 acres of the deserted camp’s 2000 were purchased by Deming’s Chamber of Commerce, assisted by a consortium of Deming businessmen, led by Joseph Mahoney, for the purpose of repurposing the facility into a Sanatorium. In September, Trost & Trost drew plans for the facility; however we are unclear on how much of the Trost plans were actually used. Period photographs of the Sanatorium are not an easy match to the architectural drawings.
