|Facility:||Annie Riggs Memorial Museum|
|Description:||Peruse through a typical guest room of the western days. The cast iron bed was a $6.75 bargain from Sears & Roebuck circa 1900. One guest room is furnished much as it was during the hotel's heyday. The Archeology Room exhibits the tusks of a Columbian mammoth, and related artifacts found at a site eight miles from town. The Butz Room features a Wells Fargo strong box made of cast iron and the safe from Koehler's Store with its hidden keyhole.
Discover a variety of other rooms featuring the cowboy era with saddles, bits and spurs, pioneer women and their clothing. Visitors learn of geologic formations and why and where we have oil and gas. The Temporary Exhibit Room has displays that change periodically as well as an excellent mural of Pecos County history by artist Stylle Reed, and an opportunity to view a video of local history.
Experience a thriving desert garden at the back of the museum, inviting benches on the wrap-around porches and an interior courtyard with a restored Pecos County buggy.
