The Presidio is a new home with history. For centuries, presidios were built in northern Mexico and the southwest United States for protection and defense. These fortress-like buildings survived due to the simplicity of their design and the integrity of their materials and construction.
The Presidio in Marfa follows this vernacular tradition: development based on local needs, architecture referencing local design, and construction using local materials and labor.
