Van Horn's Clark Hotel Museum
Today, we're sharing photos from Dan Baeza of the Clark Hotel Museum
in Van Horn. The museum chronicles the history of Culberson County and
of Van Horn, with a special eye towards the traveler. The building has
been home to a hotel since the early days of that community. Upstairs
there are even exhibits of travelers' rooms.
Originally, the "front door" of the hotel was on the north side of the
building, as the train station was just steps away. When the highway
came to town, the "front door" of the Clark Hotel was moved to the south
side of the building, where it is today, at Broadway Street (the main
street in town). Read more about it here.
