Pecos Rodeo

The first rodeo in Pecos occured in 1883, which the town claims as the first ever rodeo. Various other places make similar claims but the Encyclopedia Britannica recognized the Pecos Rodeo as the first one ever.

Reeves County Courthouse

The Reeves County Courthouse in Pecos was designed by the famous Southwestern firm of Trost & Trost, and was built in 1937 using a mix of Classical Revival and Mediterranean styles. It is not the ugliest courthouse in Texas; but is definitely not the prettiest either.

West of the Pecos Museum

Since it is located IN Pecos can it really be WEST of the Pecos? Anyway this museum has several historic plaques outside and inside you will find lots of displays about the town, the county and the entire region "West of the Pecos". It is better than a lot of local/regional museums.

    Alfredo's looks like it's falling apart! However, you did make me drool for enchiladas (it's almost supper time here.) Anyway, helping tip to the top 100! :)
