Plan Your Visit to the Blackwell School 

In 2007 a group of former students got together to save their original school building that was threatened with demolition.
 

Today the Blackwell School Alliance works to preserve and restore the historic school building; interpret and commemorate the era of segregated Hispanic education; and serve the Marfa, Texas, community culturally, historic-ally, and educationally for the benefit of all Marfa residents and visitors, now and into the future.

The Blackwell School today has photographs and memorabilia on display that have been donated by students. The museum is open to the public every week. Please come see us.

The Blackwell School is open every Saturday  

10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

Tour the exhibits, enjoy a cold beverage, learn about Marfa history!

 

All are welcome, admission is free.

The Blackwell School is located at the corner of Waco and Abbott Streets in South Marfa. From the

4-way stop light, go two blocks west and three blocks south.
