                      The Terlingua Ghost Town offers a central jumping off point for hiking, biking, motor cycling, horseback riding, shopping , galleries, live music, or watching the sun set in the east. This is an old mining town that offers, an insight into West Texas's past, our church has been restored and is often used for weddings. We love wandering the entire area and taking in the sights.
