What’s in a name? In 1883, the wife of the president of the Texas and New Orleans Railroad named a small West Texas railroad water stop Marfa after a character in a Russian novel that she was reading. Although she could not have predicted it, the name Marfa works remarkably well as an acronym that captures the history and contemporary life of this unique town.
“M” -- Mystery Lights / Movies / Military Heritage / Mining
“A” is all about Art and Architecture
“R”, the central letter of the word Marfa, is the backbone upon which the town was built: Railroad and Ranching.
