Built in 1914 for T.R.H. Smith, president of the First State Bank of Las Cruces, the 5,700 sq. ft. mansion remains the largest residence in Las Cruces. The building and the grounds are elegant. Outside, shrubs, giant trees, and flower beds greet vis itors. Inside, the living room boasts 10 ft. beamed ceilings and a deep green marble fireplace. A cheery, glassed in sun parlor crawls with blooming vines and stained glass windows brighten the dining area. Guests sleep upstairs in one of four rooms named for their individual motif: the Polynesian, Southwest, European, or Americas, each furnished with items collected during the current owners travels. Floors, upstairs and down, are fir. The servants quarters are located in the basement across from the pool room which features a 9 ft. vintage pool table.
