about the Petty-Ziegler home…

The only home built by Frank English but designed by another architect was finished in 1916 and is Carrizozo's only example of Mediterranean style architecture (said to mark the positive progress of Carrizozo's residential district).  The building has changed very little since built and has had only two owners:  Albert Ziegler, for whom it was built, a prosperous merchant of a dry goods store in White Oaks and one of those who moved his business and home to Carrizozo when the railroad came; and Vernon Petty, a merchant and former mayor of Carrizozo, who bought the home in the 1940s.  In the late 2000s, his son moved back and restored it.  Now a private residence.
