One of my ancestors, Gus Raetzsch, was Mayor of Marfa Texas back years ago so I have some family history there. I recently stayed at the historic Paisano Hotel there. Marfa is close to Fort Davis Texas where the University of Texas has the McDonald Observatory and the Fort Davis National Historical site is. I love to stay at the historic Indian Lodge at the State Park in Fort Davis, Texas. Marfa Texas is known for the mysterious Marfa Lights and has an observatory or platform just off the highway to catch a glimpse of them.
