Hot Springs Elementary School

The Hot Springs Elementary School, extant today as the Sierra County Administration Building in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico, is a Spanish/Mission Revival eclectic blend designed by Trost & Trost. Erected in 1923, there is no direct documentary evidence we have found that Trost was the architect, however historians and historical enthusiasts are united in their belief that the iconic El Paso firm designed the structure, based on its appearance.
