Dear Portal friends: Do you enjoy having history at your fingertips? We’ve appreciated your support over the years, and need your help to keep history alive. Here’s the deal: we’ve received a Challenge Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Now it’s time to keep our word and raise matching funds for the Cathy Nelson Hartman Portal to Texas History Endowment. If even half the people who use the Portal this month give $5, we’d meet our $1.5 million goal immediately! All donations are tax-deductible and support Texas history: yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

Clark Hotel Museum

About this Partner

The Clark Hotel Museum materials include images from Van Horn and Culberson County, selected for the grant Rescuing Texas History through the Digitization of At-Risk Photographs and Maps.

The Museum is located in one of the oldest surviving buildings in Van Horn, Texas and served as a hotel for many years. When Culberson County was first created, the Museum site served as the first courthouse while one was being constructed. It then served as a hotel for nearly four decades. Purchased by the Museum Association in 1979, it has been in the process of restoration.
