The tales of Judge Roy Bean are legendary; he is known as the “Law West of the Pecos.” He established his
courthouse about 1882 in Langtry, Texas, just south of Pecos, but since he was a circuit judge he held court
periodically in Pecos where he would back up his wagon and team of mules and set up court at the present day
location of the Sheriff’s Department.
