The Blackwell School National Historic Site Act, signed into law on October 17, 2022, authorizes the park to be established once a sufficient quantity of lands or interests in lands have been acquired. Following designation, the National Park Service will begin working with the Marfa Independent School District (sole landowner) to discuss land acquisition. The acquisition process is anticipated to take approximately one to two years, pending authorization of acquisition funding to establish legal land descriptions. As the acquisition process advances a more detailed map will be available.
