Historic Fort Stockton

Yes, there is a fort in Fort Stockton!

Historic Fort Stockton

Historic Fort Stockton is located on the east side of town at the intersection of Fifth and Rooney streets. Today the site includes three buildings from the original Officers’ Row (one is a private residence), the original limestone Guard House, two reconstructed Enlisted Men’s Barracks and Kitchens, and the original parade ground.

Military presence began here with the establishment of Camp Stockton in 1858 by troops of from the 1st and 8th Infantry, US Army. This first site was southwest of the present location, near the Pecos County Courthouse.

The post protected travelers and settlers on the numerous roads and trails (including the stage lines) heading west to Mexico and California from San Antonio. The abundant water supply of Comanche Springs made Fort Stockton a regular stop on these frontier crossroads, and it was here that these trails intersected the Comanche War Trail.

Calvary at Fort Stockton

The US Army withdrew from Texas during the Civil War and abandoned Camp Stockton in 1861. Confederate troops briefly occupied the site until they too, withdrew. By the end of the war little remained of this first post.

In July 1867, Colonel Edward Hatch, Commander of the 9th Cavalry, re-established Fort Stockton at its present location. The new fort was garrisoned by four companies of the 9th Cavalry, one of the new regiments created for the black men knows as “Buffalo Soldiers” who sought security in the US Army after the Civil War. The post- war fort was occupied for nineteen years (1867-1886). The fort’s 960 acres were leased from civilian landowners. An additional 25 acres on Comanche Creek were leased for the fort’s garden. By the early 1880’s the “Indian menace” was no longer a threat, and the future of the fort was limited. It was finally abandoned in 1886 as the frontier moved west.

Buffalo Soldiers at Fort Stockton

The fort consisted of about 35 buildings, two of them, the Guard House and Powder Magazine were built of locally quarried limestone from surrounding mesas, and the remainders were constructed of adobe brick with limestone foundations. Of the original buildings, only four remain: the Guard House and three of the eight Officers’ Quarters (one of which is a private residence).

The two Enlisted Men’s Barracks and Kitchens were reconstructed from original blueprints, following extensive archeological excavations.

Historic Fort Stockton, listed on the National Register of Historic Sites, is owned by the City of Fort Stockton and managed by the Fort Stockton Historical Society.

 

Barracks 1 houses the Museum and Visitor Center containing informative videos on fort history and the Buffalo Soldiers who occupied this site, original photographs and artifacts, and a gift shop. Visitors can tour the Fort and Museum for a small admission fee.
