Trost & Trost architectural plans were discovered at the El Paso Public Library by researchers Lloyd C. and June F.

The auditorium, located in Las Vegas, NM, was built in circa 1928, designed by architect E. Hart and called the Ilfield Auditorium. The Trost & Trost plans were dated 1914 and never used.
