El Paso Street is located in the heart of El Paso. This is the first and oldest street in the city. Famous folks have walked this street including Wyatt Earp (officer of the law in various Western frontier towns), Billy the Kid (a 19th century American frontier outlaw and gunman), Pat Garrett (an American Old West lawman, bartender, and customs agent who was most known for killing Billy the Kid), Pancho Villa (one of the foremost leaders of the Mexican Revolution, between 1911 and 1920), U.S. President William H. Taft, and the legendary El Paso Marshal Dallas Stoudenmire (an Old West gunman and lawman). On April 14, 1881, the infamous Four Dead in Five Seconds Gunfight took place on this dusty street between present day East San Antonio Ave. and East Overland Ave.

But for me
the most attractive was architecture of a few old buildings along El Paso Street including this building in my pictures which stands on corner of West Overland Ave. and represents mixed style that reminded me a bit some buildings in Mudejar style I have seen in southern Spain.
