Toltec Club Building

Built in 1910 for the eight-year-old men's club, the Toltec Club building was once the address where El Paso’s business and political decisions and debates and glitzy socializing took place. The membership list of the Toltec Club read like a “Who’s Who” of El Paso society. Some of the more prominent members included Joseph Magoffin, founder of the first bank in El Paso and civic leader, Henry C. Trost, the Southwest’s foremost architect, and W. W. Turney. Guests included President Roosevelt, Porfirio Diaz and General John J. Pershing. The Toltec Club also played a prominent role during the Mexican Revolution: Peace negotiations were carried out and the victory banquet for Madero was held there. Due to the Great Depression the Toltec Club had to close its doors in 1930 and since then, the building has housed various businesses. However, it is rumored that the house is hunted.

Provisional Cabinet

The picture shows the provisional cabinet which Francisco I. Madero set up after the victory of the revolutionaries in the Battle of Juarez in May 1911 and the resign of Porfirio Diaz as Mexican President. Amongst the members were his brother Gustavo A. Madero as minister of finance, and Venustiano Carranza as minister of war (later Mexican President). Francisco I. Madero made Francisco León de la Barra, one of Díaz's supporters, interim president, until he became duly-elected president in November 1911. The captured city of Juarez became provisional capital.

Globe Mills

This Globe Mills building was constructed in 1910 where it was used as a flour mill. Globe Mills was a large company with mills spread throughout the American West in the early 1900′s. Globe Mills was eventually bought out by Pillsbury in 1940. Something interesting about this building is that it was a popular location for El Paso residents to congregate and watch battles from the Mexican Revolution across the border. http://on-walkabout.com/2011/11/26/picture-of-the-day-globe-mills-in-el-paso/

Merrick Building

The Merrick building was built in 1887 in the Victorian style popular at that time. Constructed by John J. Steward and William J. Carpenter, Charles Merrick operated his clothing and tailoring business on the first floor. During the Mexican Revolution it was turned into a major arms dealer called the Shelton Payne Arms Company. In 1931 the Hollywood Cafe replaced the arms store. The St. Charles Hotel was operated on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building and was once considered the longest running hotel in El Paso until it closed in 1996. The building was beautifully renovated in 2000 and today houses a retail store and apartments.

Camino Real Hotel with Street Lamp

The picture shows parts of the old Paso del Norte Hotel, now the Camino Real. Designed by Henry C. Trost and opened in 1912, the Hotel was popular for its elegance. Also, it became a hotspot for cattlemen, ranchers, and especially for guests to see the Mexican Revolution from the rooftop. The sign which is attached to the lamp marks the "Golden Horseshoe District". It refers to the rampant time when the downtown area was filled with gambling dens, saloons and other diversions and crime and gunfights were a daily occurrence. Today, this wild west past is commemorated by plaques around town.

Holy Family Catholic Church

Holy Family Catholic Church is part of the Catholic Diocese of El Paso, Texas. The parish was originally founded as a Jesuit Mission in 1916 to care for families seeking refuge from the Mexican Revolution. It was the last church built by Rev. Carlos Pinto, S.J.. The cost to build the new church was contributed by several of the refugee families. Holy Family continued to serve exiled Mexicans for many decades. Holy Family was a mission of Sacred Heart Parish until 1933 when Bishop Schuler elevated it to a parish. In September 1948, Bishop Metzger placed the parish under the administration of diocesan priests, thereby ending 34 years of Jesuit administration. The altar of the church still holds the original statue of the Holy Family that was located at the altar of El Paso’s first Catholic Church, St. Mary Chapel.

Radford School - El Paso, Texas

A local private school for girls. Radford is the oldest private school in El Paso, Texas. Founded in 1910 by a group of local businessmen, the school was first known as the El Paso School for Girls. The school was originally located along the Rio Grande River in 2 homes in what is now known as the Sunset Heights area. There were about 25 original students from 7th grade and above in the school's first year. The school was both a day school and a boarding school for girls whose families lived outside of El Paso. The girls were given a thorough education; in addition to reading, writing and arithmetic, they were also schooled in manners, decorum and home economics. he schools' location on the border of the U.S. and Mexico has shaped its history and culture. Along with US ranchers, Mexican families who feared for their children's safety in the turbulent times following the Mexican Revolution sent their daughters north to be educated at Radford. During the Mexican Revolution, the school's students could hear and watch as battles raged just across the river. Because the school was just a stray bullet away from the war, it was moved to a safer location near Fort Bliss, at 2001 Radford Street, where it remains today. https://www.radfordschool.org/about-us/history/

Guardian Angel Church on Frutas

3021 Frutas Avenue El Paso, Texas 79905 915-533-2077; Fax: 915-533-3649 santoangelusa@gmail.com "Guardian Angel Parish" "El Paso - 1908" "Guardian Angel Church in El Paso Texas was built in 1908 on what was then considered the northern slopes of El Paso. The cornerstone was blessed on October 7, 1907 and the new church blessed on June 7, 1908 with the first Mass and first marriage performed by Father Carlos Pinto, S.J. The first baby baptized was Magdalena Velásquez, the daughter of Fernando Velásquez and Maria Gonzales on the same day of the dedication of the church. The first wedding occurred a few days later on June 10 between Mary W. Dunne and Sylvester W. McConangy. The first pastor after Father Pinto was Father A. Gilbert, S.J. who made several improvements such as the addition of the choir loft. In 1912, Guardian Angel School opened under Rev. Aloysius Blanchard with the Sisters of Loretto as the faculty. Originally called Holy Angels School, the name was changed to match the parish when a new school building was completed in 1919." "In the beginning, the church was mainly attended by English-speaking Catholics. After 1915, however, as Mexican refugees began arriving in the city as a result of the Mexican Revolution, the church increasingly became a Spanish-speaking community. In February 1918, Guardian Angel was turned over to the Mexican Jesuits. Guardian Angel also administered several missions throughout its history including Our Lady of Guadalupe, San Juan Bautista, St. Francis Xavier, Nuestra Señora de la Luz, and El Calvario, all of which eventually became parishes..."
