Fort Stockton, Texas

Historic Fort Stockton offers an interesting Driving Tour designed to give visitors a glimpse of Fort Stockton's past.  Beginning at the Historic Railroad Depot and Visitor Center the tour continues through the historic district.  We enjoyed the entire driving tour of all seventeen sites.   We took photos only at the fort.

Fort Stockton protected mail, freight and travelers
on the San Antonio-El Paso Road from 1858 to 1886.
