LOBO'S RICH HISTORY AND TRANSFORMATIONS

Situated between Van Horn and Valentine on U.S. 90, Lobo was a vital water stop due to the Van Horn Wells.

Over time, it transformed from a mail route stop in the 1860s to a cotton farming hub in the mid-20th century.

However, by the 1980s, the depleted aquifer left Lobo deserted.

GERMAN ARTISTS REVITALIZE THE DESERTED TOWN

In 2001, German artists discovered Lobo and chose to purchase and rejuvenate it.

They revitalized the abandoned structures, built a bathhouse, and hosted music and film festivals for two decades.

As time passed and maintenance became more challenging, the German owners decided Lobo needed another significant transformation.
