Welcome to Terlingua & Study Butte


Slowly the area has repopulated, thanks in large part to its proximity to Big Bend National Park: it supplies housing for park employees and businesses and services for visitors. Many of the old adobes have been reclaimed by river guides, artists and others who relish the solitude of the backcountry.

People here talk about Terlingua, Study Butte (stoo-dee byoot), and Terlingua ghost town as if they're three different towns, but the only real town here is Terlingua; the other two are just areas of it. Addresses are loose here: have patience if you're using a GPS, but really, the town's not that big.
