I stopped and spent an hour or so walking around the town of Marfa Texas. The town is small but the folks are friendly and are willing to share the history of the area including the Marfa Mystery Lights. Located in the center of downtown...More

I'm a fifth generation Texan and love old courthouses. My small town was the county seat so I grew up with one that I saw nearly daily and it's beautiful. This one is just bigger and prettier.

The courthouse is a beautiful building and the most impressive structure in Marfa. There is something to see on every floor, and the crowning glory is the top where you can get panoramic views of Marfa and the entire area.
