T. Romero & Son Building

 
As the Plaza was transforming to a Victorian environment, four buildings were erected that were related. All had imported cast-iron columns from the T.R. Pullis & Sons Co. in St. Louis, the columns for the four arriving during the same time. The architect for all four was T.J. Raywood, commissioned by different members of the Romero family for each building. It is ironic that it was this Spanish-American family, native to New Mexico, that lead the Plaza into a new era of magnificient Victorian buildings. Built concurrently with this the Trinidad and Serapio Romero store was the H. Romero & Bro. store, the Romero & Romero store, and the Plaza Hotel, which was built by the Plaza Hotel Co., headed by Benigno Romero. This building, along with the Buffalo Bar and the new Romero store ca. 1905, were ruined by fire.
