You have to look for it but Building 98 is one of the most unique places I’ve ever visited in the US. It used to be the officers housing for the fort, the last active Calvary unit in the Army. George Patton played polo here....More
I'm glad everybody else has "loved" it so far...……. wish I could say the same, however it was closed at 2 pm on a Wednesday.
Apparently you have to make an appointment, to go inside and take a tour, like a VIP, or a Billionaire,...More
I had heard a little about the military base and less about the murals by Italian prisoners. Nestled among Chinati Foundation properties and not a lot of signage available, a visit is certainly worthwhile. Our guide was informative and patient with our questions. Some of...More
Building 98 is a museum...wait, an art gallery...could be a WWII barracks...but part of it was Mrs. Roosevelt's bedroom. It was all these things and more. it's truly "Marfa-esque". Most interesting to us were the murals painted by two German POWs during the time they...More

We visited Building 98 and toured the exhibit. Then we went Chinati Foundation which is housed at the Fort. We toured the Donald Judd Outdoor exhibit. We also visited his aluminum works which are housed in two converted artillery sheds. If you go to Marfa...More
This is a complex that has been a part of Fort D.A. Russell and housed the officer’s club. In World War II it housed prisoners of war of the African army of Rommel. In a couple of rooms two of them (R. Hampel and Hans...More
