“This was a neat visit”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

This was a neat visit of a Victorian Hotel/Boarding House. We watched a video and took a self-guided tour of a few of the rooms. A nice bit of history. It was interesting that Ms. Riggs divorced her husbands successfully...simply did not happen often in those days. I believe admission was on a donation basis.

“Makes me think about the glamour of the "Old West"”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

Quick stop in the middle of a long road. Needed to get out and stretch after several hours on I-10
Always like little museums. Was not disapointed. Nice lady at the door with answers to questions and very willing to help in any way. Much enjoyed our 45 minute stop.

“Museum”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This museum is about like all museums. It hold a peek into the life of this area in the 1800's. It is different information because of being different area than I have been. Visiting museums gives us an idea of what each area was about or like during the infant stage of it's life

“I traveled Cross Country Many Times in an RV and this was my favorite small museum”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is a marvelous piece of Americana. A small doable museum to spend a delightful hour as you cross Texas and stop to admire Paisano Pete the gigantic roadrunner in town. Annie Riggs depicts life on the western frontier circa 1900-1920. I always found charming and have stopped on each of my I-10 trips.

“Neat place to check out”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

If you like history, and small, free museums, come to this quaint little place. There are all kinds of neat old gadgets, and rooms that are set up with very old things.
