I am interested in the history of the Pony Express. I’m hoping that knowing more about the route will make certain points have more significance than mileage marks I’m ticking off on my way from Missouri to California. Below are links to some of that information online.
- Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company
Wikipedia page for the firm that ran the Pony Express
- National Pony Express Association
Group that, among other activities, stages a re-ride of the route every year—on horses, in ten days.
- Pony Express National Historic Trail
The official Facebook page of the Pony Express National Historic Trail, administered by the National Trails Intermountain Region/National Park Service.
