Remarks: The location of this house has not been determined. In the El Paso city directories of 1905 and 1906, Goggin was listed at 1509 Montana. In the 1907 and 1908 city directories, he is listed at 1224 Magoffin. The 1200 block of Magoffin (in present day numbering) is flat land, and there is no trace of this house. The fact that the house is on a hill, with a hill beyond, suggests a Montana address, but the current 1509 Montana is not this house. The Goggin house, in its combination of Italianate, Queen Anne and domestic Mexican elements, is similar in style to the Brady house  at 1409 Montana.
