Saint Joseph Things to Do: 55 reviews and 76 photos


Prior to 1860, it took months to get a piece of mail from the eastern US to California. Beginning in April of 1860, that time was cut dramatically due to the organization of the Pony Express. Fearless young horsemen in relay fashion would carry the mail from the western terminus of the railway at St. Joseph to Sacramento, California, in ten days.

What were originally the stables of the Pony Express is now a museum dedicated to telling the story of these tumultuous years.

Address: 914 Penn Street
Directions: If you're in downtown St Joe, look for the signs directing you to this museum - they are everywhere.
