Some say Valentine was named for Valentine’s Day when a railroad crew of the Southern Pacific Railroad laying tracks heading east from Van Horn stopped there on February 14th, 1882. Today Valentine is known mainly for its post office which receives an abundance of cards every year to be stamped and sent to Valentines all over the country. Valentine is also known for a little movie called “Dancer Texas, population 81” which was filmed there and the surrounding area in 1997. A building façade “Oasis Gas Station” remained on the deserted roadside until early 2005. In 2005 a new building appeared west of Valentine on highway 90, Prada Marfa was erected as a work of art.
