MARFA. The name itself evokes intrigue, mystery, misconception, and debate. Regardless of what you’ve read or heard about this tiny Far West Texas town of fewer than 2,000 citizens, there remains a special, often indefinable quality that inspires, expands, and explores creativity.
But even to the first-time uninformed visitor, a brief drive or walk around town with its remarkable architectural heritage gives one an immediate visual cue that this is no ordinary remote town. Yet, it’s the people of a town that define the community more than the built environment.
Climb the stairs of the Presidio County Courthouse and discover a panorama that puts things in perspective. Pinpoint the exact moment where the town ends and the vastness of space begins. See mystery lights. See Marfa.
