Zach White Mansion

The Zach White Mansion was completed in 1906, designed in a Greek Revival style by Trost & Trost. The beautiful home was built for El Paso pioneer and land owner Zachariah Taliafero White at a cost of $40,000. Historical enthusiasts consider this property the most lavish design by Trost in El Paso, along with the Turney Mansion on Montana Avenue. The recently restored building stands today in excellent condition and in use as offices. For more information, including a brief biography of Zach White, please see
