Historic Fort Stockton

Fort Stockton was established in 1858, and was an active fort from 1867 to 1886. Today only four original buildings remain: three of eight officers' quarters and a guard house with jailer's quarters, three solitary confinement cells, and a larger holding cell. In addition, two Enlisted Barracks with kitchens have been reconstructed. The Fort Stockton Museum is housed in one of these buildings.

Annie Rigg's Hotel Museum

This building was built in 1899 of adobe blocks with Victorian wood trim using the Territorial style of architecture, and housed a hotel managed by Annie Riggs until her death in 1931. The 14 rooms now house a collection of clothing, photographs, Indian artifacts, religious objects, and much more.

Pecos County Courthouse

Here is another addition to my courthouse collection. The Pecos County Courthouse was built in 1912. To me this is how a courthouse should look. It is imposing, substantial and I admit I am a sucker for columns.
