Sites and Attractions in Martin County 

  • The town’s religious origins come to life at the Martin County Historical Museum. Artifact-rich exhibits recall the development of farms, ranches, schools, and local businesses. Also on tour by appointment is the nearby Connell House. Built in 1881 for local Catholic priests, the home of D. J. and Mary Connell features an altar room and a family sick room.

  • As you drive into town, a large sign proclaims: “Welcome to Stanton, Home of 3,000 Friendly People and a Few Old Soreheads.” The town makes good on the friendly part of its catchy slogan three times a year during Old Sorehead Trade Days. Downtown’s historical park hosts the arts and crafts festival which attracts hundreds of vendors and thousands of buyers. Heritage tourists know Stanton as a wellspring of Catholicism in West Texas.
