Welcome to Fort Stockton... A City On the Move elcome, to Fort Stockton, Texas! Located in the Trans Pecos region of the southern reaches of the vast Permian Basin in the Chihuahua Desert of West Texas, Fort Stockton was originally settled as a crossroads destination providing protection, provisions and a water supply to westward bound travelers.

W

The city is rich in the history of the settling of the west and features a downtown National Register Historic District and the reconstructed and refurbished historic fort, an excellent example of a western frontier military post. Fort Stockton is a city on the move. You can sense it from your first visit, where Paisano Pete, the world’s largest roadrunner, greets you as he hurries by. You can see it at the Visitor Center, housed in a historic train depot, that is now enjoying the results of countless hours of loving restoration. You can hear it in the waterfalls that surround the Center, as they echo the Comanche Springs which first attracted Indians and settlers to the region hundreds of years ago. Silhouettes of these long ago residents enjoy the water, in the shadow of energy-efficient and environmentally friendly windmills that provide power to the center.

Fort Stockton gives a nod to the historic, but has its eye clearly on the future. Energy plays a big part in the city’s economy, including oil and gas, and now wind. Today, Fort Stockton remains an important travel center and an excellent destination from which to explore far West Texas and Southeast New Mexico. On the list of day trips from Fort Stockton are four national parks and historic sites: Carlsbad Caverns, Guadalupe Mountains, Fort Davis and Big Bend. Also within an easy drive are seven state parks and historic sites: Fort Lancaster, Big Bend Ranch, Fort Leaton, Davis Mountains, Balmorhea, Monahans Sandhills and Hueco Tanks. And nearby are the historic towns of Marathon, Alpine, Marfa, Fort Davis, Balmorhea and Pecos. As the major travel center on IH-10, halfway between San Antonio and El Paso, Fort Stockton features modern facilities for today’s travelers including nearly 1,200 hotel rooms, 8 RV parks, 30 restaurants and 14 service stations. Please see the Buyer’s Guide in this publication to help you make your selections. Fort Stockton features a dry, mild climate, with winter temperatures rarely dropping below 30°F, summer temper-

A Brief History of Fort Stockton The city that was later to be named Fort Stockton grew up around Comanche Springs, at one time the third largest source of spring water in Texas and near Camp Stockton, established in 1858 and named for Robert Field Stockton. Comanche Springs was a favorite stop at the cross roads of the Comanche Trail to Chihuahua, the San Antonio-El Paso Road, the Butterfield Overland Mail Route, and the San Antonio-Chihuahua freight-wagon road. The post protected travelers and settlers

making use of the water supply at the springs. The Confederates took possession of the fort at the outbreak of the Civil War but abandoned it the next year. In 1867 the army rebuilt the fort on a larger and more permanent basis and garrisoned four companies of the 9th U.S. Cavalry Regiment to protect travelers and settlers from Indians. The 9th was one of the new regiments organized after the Civil War staffed with black enlisted men known as “Buffalo Soldiers”. Surmounting obstacles of harsh living conditions, low pay, and racial prejudice, they gained a reputation for tenacity and bravery. Stationed continuously on the frontier during the years of Indian hostility, black regiments played a major role in the settlement and development of America’s western frontier. When the 9th Cavalry was moved to New Mexico in 1875, Colonel Benjamin Grierson’s 10th Cavalry took over the duties of protecting the westward migration and trade routes. Until abandoned

in 1886, the fort provided employment for freighters and laborers and a market for farmers, cattle ranchers and merchants. Business men purchased large tracts of land for agricultural development planning to use Comanche Springs as a source of irrigation. In 1868, Peter Gallagher bought the land that included the military garrison and Comanche Springs, platted a town site named Saint Gaul and established two stores at Comanche Springs. By 1870, the Saint Gall region had a population of 420. Pecos County, the second largest county in the state, was established by the Texas legislature in 1871 and Fort Stockton (St. Gall) became the county seat. The area is named for the Pecos River, which flows along the northern boundary of the county


that covers over 4,776 square miles. On August 13, 1881, the name was offically changed to Fort Stockton. Located across from Zero Stone Park at the geographical center of the county, the Pecos County Courthouse was built in 1883 and originally had a dome. The courthouse was substantially remodeled into its present Classical Revival form in 1912. Since its early days, Fort Stockton has had Hispanic roots. Cesario, Bernardo, and Juan Torres owned land near Fort Stockton as early as 1867, when it was reported they owned 4000 head of livestock, and had built the first acequias (water canals) that distributed the water of Comanche Spring to the growing number of farmers. When Fort Stockton was erected in 1859, the Torres brothers helped supply food to the Army. After the military post was abandoned on June 30, 1886, and both the Texas and Pacific and the Southern Pacific railroads bypassed it, Fort Stockton experienced a decline. By then, however, it was rapidly becoming the center for an extensive sheep and cattle ranching industry. Fort Stockton was incorporated on December 29, 1910. Pecos County’s developing economy was reflected in its growing population, which

rose from 2,071 in 1910 to 3,058 by 1920. Several unsuccessful attempts to find oil in Pecos County were made after the beginning of the twentieth century. The Yates field was discovered in 1927 and it was one of the largest in the nation at the time and caused a boom. Largely because of the oil boom, but also because of the continuing farm expansion, the population of the county more than doubled during the 1920s, rising to 7,812 by 1930. Following the Great Depression, the population in 1940 was 8,185. Tourism and new discoveries of petroleum and natural gas helped the economy in Pecos County to grow in the 1950s and

1960s. In 1952 the largest gas field in the county was opened on the M. C. Puckett and Son Ranch, south of Fort Stockton. The population increased to 14,618 by 1980. In the 1980s the economy of Pecos County continued to be based on farming, ranching, oil and gas production, and tourism. As the county seat and petroleum distribution center, Fort Stockton’s population in 2010 was 8,283. References: 1. Adapted from Texas’ Last Frontier and the Trans Pecos, 1861-1895; Clayton W.

Annie Riggs Museum • Treasure of Pecos County The Annie Riggs Memorial Museum still keeps house with the past amid exhibits echoing yesteryear in Pecos County. It is owned and operated by the Fort Stockton Historical Society. The Museum is housed in an original adobe structure that was the Riggs Hotel (built 1899) where Annie Riggs was the proprietor until her death in 1931. Riggs purchased the hotel in 1904 with the proceeds from the estate of her late husband, the renowned gunslinger and all around troublemaker, Barney Riggs, who was shot and killed by Buck Chadborn (Annie’s son-in-law) in 1902. Hanging on the wall are Annie’s House Rules addressing guests with no luggage, spitting on the floor and the “burning of light” unnecessarily. In the lobby, a stern-faced lineage of sheriffs gaze down at visitors. The desk from Sheriff A.J. Royal’s office whispers of his 1894 murder, a bloody chapter in the history of Pecos County. On the desk is a 1902 ballot box from Sheffield, which was fished out of the Pecos River after being tossed there when the folks in East Pecos County objected to an election that didn’t suit them. The parlor, dining room, kitchen and one guest room are furnished much as they were during the hotel’s heyday. The

Historic Fort Stockton, Parks & Attractions

Historic Fort Stockton

Parks

The Historic Fort Stockton Museum is located in Barracks #1 on the east side of the parade grounds. A support group, Friends of Fort Stockton, assists in fund raising for the continued development of the Fort. Visitors should proceed to Barracks #1 to pay the visitor fee and pick-up a complete guide to the fort, including buildings open for visiting and event schedule.

County Attractions Fort Stockton-Pecos County Airport Opened in June 1942 with two 2,500 foot turf runways, the airport was named Gibbs Field or Fort Stockton Field and was used by the United States Army Air Forces as a training base during WWII. It began training United States Army Air Corps flying cadets under contract to Pa-


cific Air School Ltd using Fairchild PT-19s, PT-17s and a few P49 Warhawks. Inactivated in 1944 with the drawdown of AAFTC’s pilot training program, it was discharged to the War Assets Administration (WAA) and became a civil airport, today serving as a county airport. Full services are available including 24/7 FBO services and major and minor A&P mechanics. Jet A and 100LL are normally stocked. The field has two asphalt and three turf runways. Pecos County Desert Pines Municipal Golf Course is an 18 hole

course located near the airport and the home course of PGA pro Blaine McCallister. Pecos County Coliseum and Civic Center are large special event centers located near the airport and are venues for rodeos, fairs, dances, concerts and other large scale special events.

Gateway to West Texas Santa Elena Canyon, Big Bend National Park The settlement that would become the modern day Fort Stockton started as an important stop on the Comanche Trail and soon became a cross roads destination providing security, shelter and supply for westward bound travelers, whether by rail, stagecoach or horseback. As modern transportation evolved, Fort Stockton developed into an important travel center destination and today is a thriving community offering travel services, historic attractions and recreational opportunities. The city is uniquely positioned to be a travel hub and a gateway to the Big Bend region, whether traveled in day trips returning to Fort Stockton each night, or done as a loop through the region before returning to Fort Stockton.

Bee Mountain, Study Butte, near Terlingua

This entire region lies within the Chihuahuan Desert, a vast area covering most of northern Mexico, the Trans Pecos Region of Texas and parts of New Mexico. Annual rain fall is generally twelve inches or less. The desert abounds with plant and animal life that has adapted to this arid region. Take time to see the entire area and discover its natural wonders. Using Fort Stockton as your

beginning point, the first place you should visit is Big Bend National Park, www.nps.gov/bibe/. On your way to the park stop in Marathon, www.marathontexas.com, which is located in the famous Marathon Basin, representing our most ancient geological formations. Visitors will find a historic hotel and the numerous shops delightful. Big Bend National Park encompasses over 800,000 acres,

Rio Grande, as seen from Hwy. 170 and was established in 1944 to preserve outstanding examples of the rugged Chihuahuan Desert wilderness. Big Bend National Park is the largest protected area of the Chihuahuan Desert in the U.S. The park is known as “ three parks in one” with the towering Chisos Mountains, the vast Chihuahuan Desert, and the thriving riparian Rio Grande

environments all situated along the “big bend” of the Rio Grande. Be sure to stop at the Panther Junction park headquarters for information on hiking, camping, rafting, and lodging. Just west of Big Bend National Park lies the ghost town of Terlingua. Visit website www.ghosttowntexas.com, as well as

The San Soloman Springs feed the pool with 26 million gallons of water per day.
