The Pony Express Was Founded Here

Saint Joseph, MO, United States

The Pony Express was founded in 1860 right here in Saint Joseph, Missouri. Saint Joseph now has a Pony Express Museum, a large Pony Express bronze sculpture in the middle of the city, and a few memorial plaques and so much Pony Express historical information at the Patee House located on Museum Hill. I have always been fascinated by the pony express and was very surprised to learn that the entire operation only lasted 19 months and then the invention and implementation of the telegram system ended the need for a fast mail delivery since messages could be sent instantly. This was a very interesting stop on our road trip
