Yes, it's a barn. But wagon ruts are just trenches in the dirt unless you have a feeling for the history. And this barn is packed full of history. The museum is filled with great displays that interpret the Pony Express experience through the history of the town of Marysville, but the barn is the main attraction. Step into the past as you go through the double doors. Imagine the horses with their muzzles pressed against the ventilation holes, trying to breathe, while the blacksmith pounds on the anvil in the corner. Picture trying to sleep in an overheated barn while your bunkmate snores up a storm. Listen to the wind whistling through the cracks in the walls, and smell the dirt floor, littered with straw and spit and horse doo-doo. Breathe in the history, and be humbled by the longevity of the barn and the legend. The curator, Jill, has lots of stories and knowledge. Ask about the giant gun on the wall.
