On April 3, 1860, a lone rider left on horseback from the gates of one of the nationís most historic landmarks, the Pikes Peak Stables in St. Joseph, Missouri. Carrying saddlebags filled with our nationís hopes and dreams, the Pony Express riders traveled 2,000 miles west to Sacramento, California. These brave young souls raced against natureís cruel elements and rugged terrain in an attempt to unite a country separated by distance. Today the stables continue to stand as a tribute to the legend and legacy of the Pony Express and its enduring era.

Come and experience the exciting, educational and state-of-the-art exhibits conveying the creation, operation and termination of the legendary Pony Express and its riders. Whatever your age, youíre sure to be captivated by the stories and images of an era long passed.
