Pony Express Stations:
Gothenburg is home to two Pony Express Stations. The Midway is on its original ranch site south of Gothenburg. The Sam Macchette station is located in Ehmen Park just 1 mile north of I-80 at 15th & Lake Avenue.
The station in the park was used as a fur trading post/ranch housing along the Oregon Trail southwest of Gothenburg before it was used as a Pony Express station in 1860-1861. It was moved from its original site and rebuilt in Ehmen Park in 1931. The museum has been open to the public since 1954.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the summer months, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in May and September and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in April and October.
