And it was fun to learn the history of the place and see what people wore, how they cooked, how they entertained themselves, etc. The place was being renovated when I visited so some of the rooms were closed off and it was therefore...

It's obvious this hotel has gone down hill, but they are REALLY working hard at bringing it back. Annie Riggs was some woman!. Not too many women divorced their husbands way back then, but she divorced TWO, had 10 children and ran a very successful business. They lady had it going on, and I loved seeing the antique furnishing, sewing... More

This old hotel is stocked with antiques and memorabilia from the late 1800's. Each room is stuffed with interesting items and the staff is friendly. The hotel is across the street from the historic Gray Mule Saloon

This hometown museum tells an interesting story of the wild west through the experiences of twice divorced, mother of 10 Anne Riggs. A very fresh point of view by including a business women's artifacts along with the typical cowboy stuff. A great stroll for adults, but probably a tough exercise in self control for the younger crowd. Many artifact are... More

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
