Must go to top floor, see the entire town. It is a step back in time when craftsmanship was the name of the game. We entered the courtroom ( not occupied) and Wer struck by the wood work throughout knowing that it has stayed the same many, many years. It was a small peek back in history of a town that is proud of its past . Your trip is not complete without walking the circular staircase to the top.

The place is beautiful but it was closed to public unless you had business so we didn’t get to see the city view from the top.

Always enjoy seeing the courthouse in Marfa. It is one of the outstanding courthouses, architectually, in Texas.

I want sure what to expect exactly. I read things would be closed at certain times of the week or open during a limited timeframe. However, I didn’t expect closures on practically everything!

Restaurants were either closed, ran out of food, open during half the day (so no dinner), closed after 5, or required reservations. Most were closed. A coffee place was actually close in the early morning too! LOL We we’re so desperate to eat, I had to go to the small grocery store to pick up a frozen pizza.

In addition to restaurants being closed, so we’re the shops and museums.

People were NOT friendly at all and didn’t care to do business with you. This place, while out of the middle of no where, has no excuses for their atmosphere because Alpine and Fort Davis, Texas are also neighborhood towns and everything was open and way friendlier.

Marfa, TX made me realize that the future generation of America sucks.

Speed Trap Town - Go to: Speedtrap.org. They steal from the Tourist that they try to attract. The trees surrounding the court house make it almost impossible to get a decent photo. The Marfa lights will most likely be the Red and Blue flashing lights as you get pulled over for some ridiculous traffic violation. This place is a Joke!

If you’re walking around Marfa this is worth the stop. What else you gonna do in Marfa? Take the time. Nice view from the top of the courthouse. Take the time to look at the historic photos just before the top level. Be mindful of the altitude as you climb the steps. You may get winded.

There isn't much to see in this historic building, but you have to walk all the way to the top of the dome to get a great view of Marfa. The day we were there, the wind was blowing so hard, it scared my 25 year old daughter, she had to leave the room, as the windows shook. It's also great exercise, although a little narrow, and if you are afraid of heights a bit scary. I do not suggest racing up the stairs with your 15 year old. I pulled a muscle, and was sore days later. So glad my brother in law who is in the area, suggested a quick stop. Be quiet it is a working courthouse. Also there are restrooms if you need them, a must if you are walking around Marfa.

This old building has been kept in great shape and it's fun to walk through and see the old wooden stairs and railings, the courtroom that looks like we expect a courtroom to look, and a couple of beautiful chandeliers. It just takes a few minutes to walk through and it is well worth it.
