Thirty miles outside Marfa lies the legacy of prosperous trader and farmer Milton Faver who built a cattle and sheep empire beginning in the 1850s. His livestock and farm produce fed travelers on the Chihuahua Trail and troops at Fort Davis. The Favers lived in a high-walled adobe compound that served as a safe haven for their workers, area residents and U.S. Calvary patrols from Native American attacks. Now one of the region’s most significant landmarks, the restored site houses historic lodging and a restaurant at Cibolo Creek Ranch, an exclusive resort that hosts a free annual open house.
