Course description for  Trost’s Architechtural Legacy from instructor  Nicholas Dahle:

Henry C. Trost was chief designer to the architectural firm Trost & Trost. Between the years 1903 and 1933, he designed hundreds of buildings in El Paso, Las Cruces, and many other Southwestern cities. His eclectic mixture of styles and architectural skills has left a lasting legacy in both El Paso and Las Cruces that can still be felt today.  Two of the course’s four sessions will include caravan driving tours in Las Cruces and El Paso to see Trost’s creations in person. Join us as we explore the legacy of Henry C. Trost, Architect of the Southwest!
