Marfa is a land of art, nature and mystery.
Marfa, population 2,424, is said to be named by a railroad engineer's wife after a character in The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoyevsky. Founded as a water stop on the Galveston, Harrisburg and San Antonio (Southern Pacific) railroad, Marfa lies on a semi-protected highland plain of the Chihuahuan Desert between three mountain ranges at an altitude of almost 5,000 feet.
