      The Pony Express route ran from St Joseph to Sacramento, California, and this was the eastern terminal. It only ran for 19 months in 1860-61, but achieved western history and folklore that survives to this day. Two other area attractions are within walking distance and are tied in with the Pony Express; The Patee House and the Jesse James Home.

      If you go:
      Plan a full morning or afternoon to see all three sights. Check dates and hours, as these are seasonal attractions.
