Ride Into The Past At This Enthralling Pony Express Station In Nebraska
Just about everyone has heard of the Pony Express. But have you ever wondered what it was like to be one of those brave men who risked life and limb to deliver letters and news? This fascinating museum in a small Nebraska town lets you learn more about this unforgettable time in American history.
You can visit the Gothenburg Pony Express Station 7 days a week from April through October; the rest of the year, you can visit by appointment only. Check out the museum’s website for detailed hours and much more information. Address: 1500 Lake Avenue, Gothenburg, NE, 69138. Remember that admission is always free!
After you’ve worked up an appetite learning about all this history, be sure to stop by one of Gothenburg’s other awesome offerings, this delightful barn restaurant.
