(false front)The Montgomery building is the last surviving false-front wood structure in the city of El Paso. It was built in 1881-1882 as El Paso underwent a great transformation from an adobe village to a thriving city following the arrival of the railroads. Named for its builder, William J. Montgomery (1837-1899), the Montgomery Building was typical of western frontier architecture of the late 19th century.
