Mount St. Paul the Apostle Home for Priests
Raton, New Mexico


Description: Mount St. Paul the Apostle Home for Priests
Address: Raton, Colfax County, New Mexico
Type: religious: home for priests
Original Client:
Date: probably 1920s
Condition: project; not built

Architect or Firm: Henry C. Trost or Gustavus A. Trost
Associated Architect or Firm: Trost & Trost
Dimensions and Orientation: very large project, with chapel, complexes for cells, ambulatories, and probably an enclosed garden between the entry gate and the chapel.

Location of Drawings: El Paso Public Library: Ponsford 331, photograph of a rendering of a perspective view with landscape; Bradt 108, postcard of the same


Remarks: It is not possible to determine from the rendering what materials were intended, but the walls were probably intended to be finished with stucco, and the roofs Spanish tile. It is not possible to determine from the rendering what the intended site was to be. This landscape does not resemble Raton proper, but is more like the mountain area to the north. It is possible that no member of the firm made an onsite study.

This is one of the most elegant of the not built Spanish Mission projects of Trost & Trost.
