Beautiful monument, Pretty landscaping. Not located at the Pony Express Museum but it is worth the short drive.

We stopped here on our way out of town. It is located a busy street, but there is parking around the block. We parked right in front of it and walked over without having to cross any street. They have four stone markers placed at each corner detailing history about the Pony Express. There is a geocache hidden around here... More

You will have to park in a local fast food company's parking lot & cross a busy street to get there. Don't touch the bushes because they have thorns. There is a geo cache hidden there somewhere that I can't seem to find despite multiple attempts.

This is a nice statue located at a three road intersection, next to City Hall. Best parking is on Francis St. There is another nice statue in front of City Hall "No Turning Back."

It is a must see, just beautiful. It is an important part of our history and settling of the west. It was well located and easy to find.

Statue is pretty big, and is worthy of a picture. This is not located near the pony express museum though. There is a small park across the street from the museum that has a couple of markers and a train. This statue is several blocks away from all that. Check it out!
