»Annie Riggs Memorial Museum

Appropriately named in memory of Annie Riggs, this museum is housed within the very boarding house this frontier woman once owned and managed. This adobe structure was build in the late 1800s and is an excellent example of territorial architecture. The thirteen rooms that make up the house have been refurnished to resemble what the hotel would have looked like in its heyday, while the numerous exhibits on display chronicle the region's the rich and colorful history. Here you will find a host of intriguing artifacts including a desk from the office of the murderous Sheriff A.J. Royal, the tusks of a Columbian Mammoth, a restored buggy and an ill-fated ballot box that was retrieved from the depths of the Pecos river. Each artifact has a fascinating story of its own, making it easy to while away hours exploring the many treasures that are enclosed within these walls. Whether you are a local history buff, an architecture enthusiast or just a curious traveler, the Annie Riggs Memorial Museum has something for everyone.

»Historic Fort Stockton

Although the U.S. military had established its base in Fort Stockton in 1858 itself, the original post was abandoned a few years later and was replaced by the existing fort in 1867 after the end of the Civil War by Colonel Edward Hatch. The fort remained occupied for the next 19 years before it too was abandoned. While the Historic Fort Stockton once boasted a collection of 35 buildings, only four have survived. Of these three are the original Officers’ Quarters and the fourth is a limestone guard house. Apart from these four structures, the site also encompasses the original parade grounds and two Enlisted Men's Barracks that have been reconstructed based upon original blueprints and excavation findings. One of the barracks has been converted into a museum and visitors center. Here you will find videos that illuminate the fort's intriguing history alongside original artifacts and exhibits that deal with the "Buffalo Soldiers" who once resided here.
