MONAHANS, GRAND FALLS AND FORT STOCKTON STAGE COMPANY.
"Good teams and careful attention to all," reads the ad in the FORT STOCKTON DAILY PIONEER newspaper for May 5, 1911, "Stage run seven days in the week." The stage left Fort Stockton at 7 A.M. and arrived in Monahans at 6:30 P.M. with a dinner stop at Grand Falls, Holman Hotel in the background. (Zoe Sewell Coll.)
Monahans is about two water stations west of us, but this photo is worth
enjoying. The stagecoach from Monahans to Fort Stockton normally loaded
at the Texas & Pacific depot in Monahans. They were equipped to accomodate as
many as 25 passengers.
