Demolishing more than history as city moves forward with arena location

In October, 2016 El Paso’s city council approved the demolition of a neighborhood in downtown El Paso to make way for a multi-million dollar arena. Since then, activists and historians have fought to preserve the neighborhood.  This is the first in a series of stories on what took place.
