Original Pony Express Home Station

Description

Besides being the oldest building in Marshall County, this is the only original Pony Express home station remaining on its original site along the Pony Express route. Built in 1859, this barn was only a year old when it began leaving the lamp lit for weary post riders. Today, the barn houses regional memorabilia including Pony Express, Native American, and pioneer exhibits. There is also a 15-minute video that explores the history behind the Pony Express. Before leaving, pay a visit to the gift shop for some take-home treasures. The museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum is open April through October. For a great photo opportunity stop by the Bronze Pony Express Horse Rider monument. You might think if you've seen one bronze Pony Express monument, you've seen 'em all. But this one carries the title, "Midwest's Largest Sculpture of Its Kind." The sculpture was dedicated in 1985 at the 125th anniversary of the Pony Express. The monument is located at the corner of 7th Street and Highway 77/36 in the heart of Marysville.
