Not your usual restaurant patio, the "patio" area of Fort Leaton had corrals for livestock back in the 19th century, when it was a home to multiple families. Now Fort Leaton houses the Big Bend Ranch State Park visitor center and a museum.
Fort Leaton is an adobe structure located on the road that goes along Rio Grande past Big Bend Ranch State Park. The museum consists of several rooms that used to be inhabited by the families living here. The rooms are furnished with reproductions of historical furniture and decor from that time period (mid-to-late 19th century).
