J.H. Laurie Residence

The J.H. Laurie Residence in El Paso was erected late 1909, designed by Trost & Trost. The contractor was J.C. Huff, and the cost of the construction was $6,000. The home stands today in good condition, a classic example of Trost’s Craftsman Foursquare design, including the “Arid America” 4 foot eaves. The appearance of the home suggests that a number of small changes have taken place through the decades, however the original Trost design is intact.
