The Ground Floor

The museum can be accessed through the lobby and is generally staffed. Visitors are greeted by a dedicated volunteer staff.

The furnishings in the lobby are period items of the 1904 Orient Hotel and the original 1896 Saloon.

The complete Saloon is just off the hotel lobby and contains the original bar and bullet holes from a “disagreement” that left two gunfighters dead. The Saloon also contains its original stairway to the upper bedroom along with the “Bedroom Sign.”

The Railroad Room contains “Texas & Pacific Railroad” items from the 1881 era, 1890 period items from the “Santa Fe”, and 1909 artifacts of the “Pecos Valley Southern” Railroad.
