Step Back in Time, Be a Traveler at the Clark Hotel Museum

Van Horn's Clark Hotel Museum
Van Horn has always been a place for travelers, folks heading across the nation.  Before I-10, it was the Bankhead Highway and the Old Spanish Trail or the train, and before that stagecoach lines.  The Clark Hotel was one of several hotels in Van Horn for visitors to spend the night.  Read more about it here.

Located on Broadway, Van Horn's main street, just west of the intersection of Hwy 90 and Hwy 54, the Hotel building is now a historic museum telling the story of early Culberson County.  Visit it, and see how travelers lodged for an evening on their trips across the country.

The Museum's website is here.  The site and the last three photos in this post are the work of Dan Baeza, Van Horn native and our Texas Mountain Trail photography intern last summer.  Thanks, Dan!
