Last correction. El Paso Lodge #130. Known to the outside world as "a masonic lodge." El Paso Lodge # 130 moved from places owned by the membership as well as the aforementioned. El Paso Lodge #130 Masonic Temple that was demolished was built by *Trost & Trost. Both of Henry Trost's brothers belonged to the lodge. Members of my lodge have included leaders of industry, several pioneers and way too many civic leaders. Brother Schwartz belonged to El Paso Lodge #130 of the (Grand Lodge of Texas).
