As you know, last night, we lost a 130 year old, historic downtown El Paso building that once housed the law offices of famed gunslinger John Wesley Hardin. Tomorrow afternoon, there will be a march to commemorate that loss, and hopefully a drive to keep such a thing from happening again.
John Wesley Hardin was a famous gunslinger in the late 1800's. He was also a lawyer who had his offices at the intersection of San Antonio and S. El Paso Streets, across the street from the Camino Real Hotel, itself a historic landmark in El Paso. Last night, the building that Hardin practiced law out of, burned for four hours, and is considered a total loss.
