The Clark Hotel Museum holds images and artifacts that tell the story of early Van Horn and Culberson County.  In 2005, our Texas Mountain Trail wrote a grant for the museum to have many of their photographs digitized and included in the University of North Texas' Portal to Texas History...which is why we can share this photo with you!  It is saved online for curious folks, researchers, and school children to see.
