In the Saturday, February 9, 1929 El Paso Times, a Trost & Trost print ad lists the Jornado Hotel in Hatch, New Mexico as one of the firm’s designs. The Hotel was built by Hatch mayor Harry Wilson, who operated the property until he was shot and killed in June, 1936. The Hotel was remodeled in November of 1926 into a Pueblo Indian Style at a cost of $5,000 by the firm of Trost & Trost, according to the 11/11/1926 El Paso Herald, page 7. Interestingly, the newspaper calls the firm “Trost & Troast”. The building was demolished in the late 1960s. Unfortunately, we have not been able to find any photographs of the building.
