Inscription.  The Annie Riggs Memorial Museum was originally the Koehler Hotel built in 1899. Annie Frazier Johnson Riggs purchased the hotel for $5,000 in 1904 and changed the name to the Riggs Hotel. She operated the business as a boarding house. The building is an excellent example of territorial architecture built of adobe with Victorian wood trim and a wraparound porch. The Riggs family donated the building to the Fort Stockton Historical Society in 1955 for use as a museum. The Historical Society continues to operate the facility, housing exhibits featuring the history of Fort Stockton and the surrounding area.
