The Big Red Barn

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Apr 5, 2010 in 1993 Volvo 940

The Sod House Museum is located at 300 S Lake Ave in Gothenburg, NE just off off I-80 at exit 211. It’s at the same exit that the original Pony Expess Station is at.

You can see the world’s largest plow in front of the museum. And even if the museum is closed you can still go and see the sod house and a few scuptures made out of bared-wire just behind the red barn.

Original Pony Express

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.
