Photographer's Note:

The Clark Hotel on Broadway

"When the county was organized, the Clark Hotel served as the county courthouse from 1911-1912 until a permanent courthouse could be built. Begun in 1901, the main portion was built in 1905-06. It was the first permanent structure built in Van Horn. It was converted into a hotel in 1918 by Fred Clark." - Terry Jeanson

Photographer's Note:

The Duke's Castle in Van Horn

"Courthouse photographers should note that the burned ruins of this building across from the Culberson County courthouse are not the ruins of an old courthouse. Built as a private residence in 1910, it was later bought by a man known as the Duke D'Autri who remodeled it to resemble his family's home in Europe. Even in this state, it is still more compelling than the current courthouse." - Terry Jeanson
