description

Loretto Academy, designed by Henry C. Trost (1860-1933) in 1922, embodies fine architectural values and stands as one of the most notable landmarks in Austin Terrace. When the Sisters of Loretto selected the site and retained Trost & Trost to design the original buildings, much of the surrounding area remained undeveloped. The choice to establish Loretto Academy in Austin Terrace contributed greatly to the subsequent residential development throughout the subdivision.
On April 17, 1990, the Austin Terrace Historic District was established to protect the architectural character of this distinctive El Paso neighborhood.
