Move over Prada Marfa, a Tiny Target Has Popped up in West Texas

Yet another recognizable name has popped up along U.S. 90. This time, it’s a tiny railroad building featuring the unmistakable Target bullseye.

Similar to the random Prada storefront facade that draws folks out to Marfa, Texas, this Target is not operational. Moreover, the mini-Target is totally purposeless, and is likely to trick weary West Texas travelers.

The tiny Target was labeled the “Target Marathon” for its proximity to the 470-person town of the same name. The Target Marathon popped up sometime in early 2016, but no one seems to know who is responsible for the installation.

Many have assumed that the Target Marathon must draw some inspiration from the Prada Marfa installation. However, those responsible for the Prada Marfa have not laid to claim to the Marathon Target.

Incidentally, the Target Marathon’s days may be numbered, as no one has claimed any ownership to protect its existence. So, if you’re itching for a random photo alongside U.S. 90, the time to get it is now. If you’re in the mood for a road trip, check out the 10 Weirdest Roadside Attractions in Texas.
