Historic Store in Big Bend

Near the trailhead for Santa Elena Canyon is the Castolon historic site in Big Bend National Park.
Dating from 1902 until 1944, when the park was established, there was a consulate, sheriff's office, bank, and general store in Castolon, and an important place for residents of northern Mexico and the Big Bend region.
Today, a visitors center provides historical displays and a small store. Winter is a great time for a visit!
