Something old; something new

A new/old sign went up in Van Horn last week, adorning the Trost and Trost-designed Hotel Capitan Building, restoring the skyline to what it was many years ago.

The folks responsible for Fort Davis' Limpia Hotel and Marfa's Hotel Paisano (both on our Historic Hotels list!) have purchased the building long housing Van Horn's bank, and are turning it back into hotel.

Here's a historic look at the sign atop the Hotel Capitan, from an image in the collection of the Clark Hotel Museum in Van Horn and the Portal to Texas History! Click here to see it!
