Joseph Magoffin (1837-1923), son of James Wiley Magoffin, one of the founders of the city, settled in El Paso in 1856. He held many offices: Collector of Customs, County Judge, and Mayor for four terms. In 1875, six years before railroads reached El Paso, he built this pueblo-style house of adobe and timbers from the Sacramento Mountains of New Mexico. The ceilings of many rooms have pine vigas under cross timbers. His family lived here over a century.
