Magoffin Home State Historic Site Information:
The 19 room adobe Magoffin home is located on 1.5 acres in downtown El Paso. It was built in 1875 by Joseph Magoffin. The single story, three winged building is an example of Territorial-style architecture which features local adobe with Mid-Victorian wood trim. The south wing is thought to have been constructed in the early 1870s, the north wing between 1875 -1877, and the east wing was probably built in the 1880s. When the east wing was completed, the exterior of the home was plastered and scored to give a masonry appearance to the building. Old photographs from 1887 to1910 show the home furnished in Victorian era style. The rooms have been renovated and furnished with period pieces, accessories and art. The home was extensively restored in 2012. Activities include guided home tours and picnicking on the grounds. Enter through the front gate and ring the doorbell to purchase tickets. The home is ADA compliant. This SHS is available for event rentals. For more information, read the Visitors Guide.  (915) 533-5147. 1120 Magoffin Avenue, El Paso, Texas 79901.  Email
