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. 

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

The Blackwell School Alliance works to preserve and restore the its 1909 historic "Mexican School" building; interpret and commemorate the era of segregated Hispanic education; and serve the Marfa, Texas, community culturally, historically, and educationally for the benefit of all Marfa residents and visitors, now and into the future.

The Blackwell School has photographs and memorabilia on display that have been donated by students.
