Pony Express Station

This original Pony Express Station is located in Ehmen Park in Gothenburn, Nebraska .  It’s a pretty cool stop if you are traveling on I 80.

The history of Gothenburg dates back to the great westward expansion, when thousands of pioneers crossed through here on the Mormon and Oregon Trails. In 1860 and 1861 the town boasted a station for the Pony Express.

Thanks for your article. I visited the XP Relay Station in Ehmen Park during the 1996 Olympic Torch Relay. It is great that the people in Gothenburg have taken such pride in their XP
