  • Historic Fort Stockton is a must see spot if you are visiting Fort Stockton. There is an open area with old houses and beautiful scenery. There are a few signs that explain historic points and even a path you can take as a self-guided driving tour. Beautiful buildings representing a proud history.
  • The museum is small, but informative. Many of the buildings are locked with no admittance. The ones you may go in are very interesting and give you great perspective of what pioneer soldiers lives were like. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
  • 1800's Cavalry Post used to protect wagon trains going west. It was located on a Cheyenne Trail that crossed the river at that location Good museum with a 15 minute film regarding the history of the fort.
  • This was a great place to take the kids. There were lots of stuff to do for the whole family.
  • Great fort. Wish it was better kept by the city
