El Paso history is Six Guns and Shady Ladies, El Paso’ s prominent Old West re-enactor group. They met at San Antonio Street and El Paso Street on April 14, 2016, and portrayed the famous “Four Dead in Five Seconds” gunfight.
It also made Marshall Dallas Stoudenmire famous on that date, April 14th, on that same corner, in 1881.

The Texas Trost Society held a sold-out fundraiser walking tour of Henry Trost buildings in downtown El Paso, Texas on March 26, 2016.
For the evening, Dr. Max Grossman, architectural historian, became Henry C. Trost, famous El Paso architect, and personally led the discussion and tour, primarily of Bassett Tower.
It is a 1930 masterpiece of Trost’s work, and guests climbed 8 floors to see some of the building’s interior prior to renovation.
