Judge Roy Bean Visitor Center

Roy Bean

The Judge Roy Bean visitor's center in Langtry, Texas features a rustic saloon, a courtroom and billiard hall, and the opera house of Judge Roy Bean, the colorful and controversial "Law West of the Pecos" during the 1880's. The center preserves the historic site where Judge Bean ruled with a high handed, but appropriate brand of homespun law, outrageous humor, and six-shooter justice. The adjacent information center interprets highlights of Judge Bean's career in six dioramas with special sound programs. Travel counselors provide literature and information about every part of Texas. The impressive cactus garden displays the diverse flora of the Southwest; plaques label specimens and cite Indian/pioneer lore about the thorny plants. A self guided taped tour of the garden is available. Admission to the center is free, and it is open daily 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.,except Easter Sunday, Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve/Day and New Years.
