"Brewster County Courthouse"

Although people have passed through this area for thousands of years, the first permanent settlement was established in 1882 when the railroad came here. This was a prime spot for the railroad because of the abundance of water from Burgess Springs. At first the town was called Murphyville and when Brewster County was formed it became the county seat. In 1888 the town was renamed Alpine. Pictured here is the Brewster County Courthouse which was built in 1887. No one seems to recall who built it though.

"Museum of the Big Bend"

The Museum of the Big Bend is located on the campus of Sul Ross State University on the east edge of the town of Alpine. It offers an excellent introduction to the cultural heritage and natural features of the Big Bend through it's permanent displays and temporary installations.

"Meet the Locals - Ted Gray"

I always enjoy meeting the locals when I travel and Ted Gray was one of the most interesting yet. He wrote a book about his expereinces and had a book written about him. He was fascinating to talk to, and is a fixture around Alpine.
