“Pony Express Capital of Nebraska”
Gothenburg is home to 2 original Pony Express Station. In 1931, this station was donated to the City of Gothenburg and moved to Ehemen Park Arboretum. It is open FREE to the public April-October. During off season, you may tour the station by appointment.
Nicely restored station, relocated from private property to a city park. The attendant was informative & interesting.
Definitely stop here! We have stopped here twice on cross country trips! There is a pony metal cut out and a historic rock plus an original cabin that was part of the pony express. Come when it is open to see the artifacts inside (free) and buy some fun or educational pony express souvenirs. The park has nice green space, bathrooms, picnic tables under a pavilion and a playground too.
Short stop, but nicely put together.
Really interesting place very well-maintained building beautiful little park lots of great souvenirs interesting travelers we highly recommend
This was really very cool! They did an amazing job making building look very authentic! Sweet man at register. Lots of cute souvenirs. We absolutely loved it
Very cool place to visit. Very informative guide was willing and eager to share all you wanted to learn. She even suggested a few other, not so distant, places to stop.
Adelle made this a much cooler experience because she explained a few things and was very excited to see our son be curious
Worth the visit as its an important part of history
A thing to see. Very historic and beautiful.
Great stop! Simple cabin with so many history in it. Worth the stop if you have and Rv you can park in the park, visit the Pony Express and have lunch in the beautiful park full of different trees. It has a playground so the kids may get tired to your next stop. Amazing little piece of history!
Very interesting stop. There is also a free museum across the street. The volunteers at both the Pony Express building and the museum were very knowledgeable about the area and history. Well worth the super quick detour!
