An Astrobleme, And Hotel History With The Rambling Boy

Elise Pepple
Marfa Public Radio
Reporter Sally Beauvais visits with Lonn Taylor The Rambling Boy in his home in Fort Davis.

Listeners Linda Beranek, Guadalupe Espinoza, and Josh Knight are among many Marfa Public Radio listeners who have submitted questions about esoteric local history to West Texas Wonders.

So we turned to resident historian Lonn Taylor, also known as The Rambling Boy, to answer their questions about: the story behind the Sierra Madera Astrobleme signs between Fort Stockton and Marathon, whether the Davis Mountains State Park Indian Lodge is haunted, and how true it could be that Hotel Settles in Big Spring was once home to a brothel.

Sally Beauvais is a reporter at Marfa Public Radio.
