Teresita Urrea Historic Site - El Paso, Texas

A plaque is now at this site where healer-saint-revolutionary Santa Teresita Urrea lived in 1897. It was also the site of the first customs house, a Ladies Hospital, Aoy Elementary School and a Chinese Laundry. In 1907 it was refurbished by a Frenchman named Pierre Cazanabe, alias Felix Robert. The building that is standing there today was the home of Henry Flipper in 1919 and 1920. Flipper was the first African American graduate from West Point. March is Women's History Month.
