In the lobby, a stern-faced lineage of sheriffs gaze down at the visitors signing the guest book. The desk from Sheriff A.J. Royal's office whispers of his 1894 murder, a bloody chapter in the history of Pecos County. A 1902 ballot box from Sheffield can be found on the desk. The box was fished out of the Pecos River where it was tossed when the folks in East Pecos County objected to an election which didn't go to suit them. The parlor is home to two early pianos of Fort Stockton. Hanging on a wall are the house rules set by Annie Riggs. Provisions were made for guests with no luggage, spitting on the floor and for the burning of light's unnecessarily. guest room Typical guest room of the western days.
