Albert Fall Mansion

El Paso, El Paso County

The two-story Classical Revival mansion was home to Albert Bacon Fall, Secretary of the Interior under President Warren G. Harding.


Fall was convicted of accepting a bribe during the Teapot Dome Scandal, and the term “fall guy”originates from his role. The house incorporated colossal white columns from Fall’s boyhood home in Kentucky. Located in a City of El Paso historic district, it is threatened by neglect.
