(2) Bisbee Daily Review, October 27, 1907 tells that Trost & Trost are the architects

Remarks: The house is attributed to Trost by the Historic Preservation Office, Phoenix, and by Robb Boucher, Bisbee, who restored the house. However, the ground plan is unlike other Trost homes, and the attribution is problematical.
