Lincoln Residence

The B.C. Lincoln Residence was completed in circa 1901 and designed by Henry C. Trost, independently of the firm of Trost & Rust. The home, which stands today in excellent condition, foreshadows some of the Prairie School style he adopted in later years in El Paso, including the “Arid America” four foot overhanging eaves and doubled exterior walls designed to keep the home cool. The residence was restored in 1977. For more information, please see
