Trinidad Country Club

-A A +A
1922, Isaac H. Rapp, William M. Rapp, and A. C. Hendrickson. 142 Nolan Way

As published in the January 1923 issue of Architectural Record, this one-story stucco “adobe” clubhouse with vigas, log porch posts, rounded corners, flat roofs, and an entry bell tower exemplified the early Santa Fe Style, combining Pueblo Revival and Mission Revival elements. The towers at the front corner were borrowed from the old church of the Acoma Pueblo in New Mexico. Soft, irregular lines are epitomized in the parapet, which rises and falls along the roofline, becoming higher at corners and where it is integrated into chimneys. A. C. Hendrickson did most of the design work on this project for the firm of Rapp and Hendrickson. Still a clubhouse for what is now a municipal golf course, it has been somewhat altered but retains the corner fireplace and ceiling beams inside. It commands an impressive site, seeming to grow out of the local clay atop a mesa overlooking Trinidad.
