Remarks: The three hotels in Pecos of this period were the Beacon, the Graham and the Brandon, none of which appear to be Trost & Trost designs.

Dues & Co hotel operators of El Paso, have acquired several attractive hotel sites in Pecos and will at once erect a modern hotel. The plans include a large lobby, mezzanine floor, theater, private dining room, dance floor, barber shop and store space., costing in the neighborhood of $100,000.

In 1929, H.L. Birney and C.N. Bassett drove to Pecos after the opening of La Caverna hotel at Carlsbad, to consider purchasing of the new Graham hotel. Whether or not the purchase is made depends upon a report from Trost & Trost. This would be part of the chain hotel franchise.
