The courtyard, corral, and blacksmith shop at Fort Leaton State Historic Site were all full of history. The one item you find most people remarking about is the carreta, or ox cart. It has two six foot high wheels and when fully loaded, it would require several oxen to pull it. They were typically used to haul freight from San Antonio to cities in Mexico. Marvelous!
The Hotel Paisano is a historic gem right in the heart of Marfa. If you find yourself in this city, you must take a few minutes to walk through and admire the hotel and the history that finds its home here.
