Note: The above is a replica of the marker placed in 1940 (replica placed in 2017). However, no records prior to 1862 show a station here. This includes the 1861 Pony Express Schedule. In 1862, this new station was built by the Central Overland Stage & Freight and used by others.

This is Utah Pioneer Trails and Landmarks Association historic marker #90 and Sons of Utah Pioneers historic marker #236, located along the pony express trail in Utah’s west desert and erected August 23, 1940.
