The {historic} El Paso series focuses on the historic buildings populating the desert cityscape of El Paso, Texas. Few outside of El Paso know of the city’s rich and diverse cultural history which is reflected in its stunning architectural masterpieces created by some of the Southwest’s most renowned architects.

Unfortunately, many of El Paso’s great architectural beauties have either been demolished or have fallen into great disrepair. Each of the Historic El Paso series prints depicts in great architectural detail a different building significant to the history of El Paso. Five percent of each sale goes to the local Texas Trost Society, which does amazing historical preservation work all over El Paso. I hope that this Historic El Paso series will both raise awareness about these beautiful structures and help aid in their preservation.

MERRICK BUILDING

Built in 1887. The Merrick Building was constructed by John Steward and William Carpenter. Originally, the building functioned as a clothing and tailor establishment owned and operated by Charles Merrick.

In its years on 301 South El Paso Street, the Merrick Building has been converted into arms dealer during the Mexican Revolution, then the Hollywood cafe, and later the Charles Hotel. Currently, it houses two businesses on its first floor and apartments above.
