Port Residence - Trost Society

Port Residence

An interesting period hand-written notebook page lists buildings that Trost & Trost drew or will draw plans for. Copies of this page are in the possession of the Trost family and other historical enthusiasts, including the Trost Society. J.W. Port is listed as a residential client in this document, and period City Directories list his address as 1300 West Blvd, which translates to 1300 W. Yandell today. The design of the extant residence at that address is troublesome, very uncharacteristic for the Trost firm. It may have been designed by Trost but remodeled extensively, or not built from Trost plans at all. For more information, please see https://www.henrytrost.org/buildings/port-residence-and-garage/
