Right in the center of town, it was a neat photo opportunity! There wasn't any parking nearby, so we parked in the Taco Bell parking lot and then walked across the street to take photos.
Always take guests here to get their pic! They just re-did the grounds so it looks really nice. Pictures are impressive #ponyexpress
The 4 plaques around this wonderful monument really give the information about the pony express. The monument of the pony express rider and horse is very life-like. Street parking next to it.
Saint Joseph Missouri was the start of the Pony Express! This is a must see statue that really brings the Pony Express to life! You can take photos of the statue from each direction. There is street parking right next to it. I was puzzled as to what the "single claw" coming out from beneath the horse was? See photo.... 更多
The Pony Express Monument is a visual reminder that St. Joseph, Missouri was the starting point for riders heading west through Indian territory. There are a number of other historic sites to visit not far from the statue.
Very cool exhibit. Sort of hard to find, and when you do find it parking is difficult. We had to park up the hill, and walk down. The exhibit is surrounded all around by busy roads, but worth a look.
