Whereever it came from, Marfa is a pretty cool name. Would the town be as hip if it had a prosaic name like its neighbors Fort Davis and Alpine? Then again, the romantic Valentine, Texas hasn’t really taken off
Whether or not the name has helped make the place, it’s clear that the locals love Marfa. I’ve never seen so many references to a town name in such a small place. I mean, it’s not like there’s more than one bookstore – does it need to be The Marfa Book Company?
If you’ve been here, see if you can ID where each of these Marfas is from.
