Portrait of Annie Riggs
Restored Kitchen inside Museum
Housed in an original adobe structure built at the turn of the 20th century, the Annie Riggs Memorial Museum was originally a hotel and boarding house run by a frontier woman of the same name.
The museum contains thirteen rooms recreated with original artifacts, including the house rules set by Annie Riggs posted on the wall. In the lobby, stern-faced sheriffs gaze down at visitors and the desk of Sheriff A.J. Royal whispers of his 1894 murder, a bloody chapter in the history of Pecos County.
Visitors can experience a thriving desert garden at the back of the museum, complete with inviting benches on a wrap-around porch and an interior courtyard with a restored buggy. The museum also houses a gift shop.
The museum is owned and operated by the Fort Stockton Historical Society, and a small admission fee is collected upon entry.
