Marfa was established as a railroad water stop. In 1955, the El Paisano Hotel served as the base of operations for the filming of “Giant.” The Marfa Municipal Golf Course is the highest nine-hole golf course in Texas at 4,882 feet above sea level. Legendary soaring conditions make this an ideal location for glider rides.
