Significance: Designed by local architects John J. Stewart and William J. Carpenter, the Merrick Building is one of the most extensively detailed buildings in the South El Paso Street area. The building is an example of a commercial structure with Queen Anne and Romanesque details. Constructed during a building boom following the arrival of the railroads in El Paso, the Merrick Building serves as a fine example of El Paso's early architectural heritage.
