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.
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.
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.
There is a nice historic district along Main Streets and Nelson Streets, near the courthouse. more travel advice
It is believed this house, constructed in 1859 was the Sutler’s Store for Camp Stockton. It is the oldest house in town. more travel advice
