A very unique display of Pioneer life West of the Pecos River, In Texas. This beautiful old building is a blend of Spanish adobe and Victorian Embellishment. The interior is the very well preserved old hotel used by pioneer ranching families as a place to stay when in town as well as cowboys and travelers. I especially the kitchen and... More

The video in the museum was quite informative. The museum has many objects, clothes, dolls, etc from that time period. There is an archeology room as well. We did not know anything, about Fort Stockton, but we do now!

Admission was $2 for kids 12 and under and adults are $3. We paid and then walked thru the house - took us about 20 minutes. I think some of the items in the kitchen should have more labels so we know what they're for...all the other rooms were well explained.

This is a small museum that was once a hotel back in the early days of Fort Stockton. The short intro video was fascinating, detailing the history of the hotel as well as the early personalities of Fort Stockton. This truly was part of the Old West with "political intrigue", good guys, bad guys, assassinations, gunfights, etc. They have a... More

A lot of interesting history presented here. Various rooms with period clothing, furniture and utensils. The kitchen was of particular interest. Well preserved and presented.

Very surprised at how good this museum looks and how it is maintained. Worth getting on line before you go and reading some of the information about Riggs and family/friends.

After you pay, you self guide yourself through the museum. It's a quick tour, maybe a hour. I would suggest you combine this with other things to see.

Stumbled upon this gem of Fort Stockton history while stranded during the Blizzard 2015. Lots of interesting antique knick knacks and a blood stained desk. Well worth the small admission price for a short history lesson of the area. And follow up with the driving tour of the area and don't forget to take a photo with the Giant Road... More
