Tucson Country Club

The Tucson Country Club building was a delightful eclectic blend of Mission Revival, Spanish and Pueblo, designed by Trost & Trost and completed in 1914. It was built on a 120 acre portion of the Hereford Ranch, a few miles east of Tucson, which was donated by landowner John M. Roberts. The building is hauntingly reminiscent of El Paso’s Franklin Mountains Country Club, which was erected in 1916 and designed by the firm of Gibson & Robertson. Charles Gibson, who drew the plans for the El Paso property, may have been heavily influenced by the Trost building in Tucson. The Tucson Country Club was demolished circa 1968.
