This is one of the 12 Texas Travel Information Centers operated by the Texas Department of Transportation for the convenience of the traveling public. It features a rustic saloon, courtroom, billiard hall and the opera house of Judge Roy Bean, the "Law West of the Pecos" in the 1880s. The center preserves the historic site where Judge Bean ruled with his high-handed brand of homespun law, outrageous humor and six-shooter justice. The adjacent visitor center interprets highlights of Judge Bean's career in "The Magic of Pepper's Ghost Revealed" where dioramas come to life with historic re-enactments. The "ghost-like" characters recall events during Bean's tenure as judge.
