about the Old Lutz House…

This house was built for Henry Lutz, the first mayor of Carrizozo.  Architects Issac & William Rapp of Trinidad, CO also built the Lutz Building down the street.  The Lutz's owned the house until 1949 when it was bought by Will Ed Harris.  In 1962 the famous Prehm brothers bought it as their city house - the Stearn's brick house on E Avenue was their country house.  Local residents bought it in 2012 and completely restored it to its former glory.
