105 WEST LINCOLN STREET originally started out as stables for the iconic Presidio County courthouse in the 1890s. A central residence was later built in the yard, and the surrounding structures converted into casitas in the 1920s. The property operated as apartments for almost a century, taking on numerous remodels and ultimately falling into disrepair. It was fully updated by the current owners between 2015 and 2017.

THE 105 LINCOLN is now a courtyard-compound consisting of long-term housing and hotel suites (one of them a bomb shelter added in the 1950s). Each of the eclectic suites has been lovingly restored with respect to the history of the building and Marfa-inspired custom details. No two spaces on the property are alike.


CLARK & ADAM (the owners)

Texas-native Clark Childers was on a soul-searching mission when he moved to Marfa in 2013 to work on the local film festival. When he returned to Los Angeles, Clark had a hard time shaking his attraction to far-West Texas. When he met Adam Walton from New England, the two of them clicked. During a visit to Marfa, they took notice of an abandoned compound on the courthouse square and decided to stick around. It took over two years (and a lot of elbow grease) but they got it done. In more ways than one, 105 Lincoln was a leap of faith and a labor of love.
