Nice to see, but not much to do except take a picture. Landscaping was nice when the flowers are in bloom.

Our group enjoyed the visit and especially loved the one house school house. Our youth were able to dress up as they did in the early 1900's. The tours were ok and we had a catered lunch which was good.

We don't live too far from it, so everyone we go downtown, we see it. You can go and take one (or more) pictures of it. It's a really cool sculpture.

I was shocked to see this ranked so high on the list of things to do in St. Joe. It is a monument... albeit a nice one... still nothing more than a monument in the middle of a crazy intersection that you will find a struggle to see any closer than in your car while driving by.

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.
