B.F. Hastings Building - Old Sacramento, California

The Pony Express route follows J Street, passing through the city of Sacramento, heading directly to the B. F. Hastings Building, which was the western terminus for the Pony Express during most of its existence. Express mail bound for San Francisco usually reached its destination on the ferry Antelope.

Old Sacramento includes two Pony Express historic sites-the B.F. Hastings Building and a Pony Express statue. Other points of interest are found along the urban corridor, which is well marked.
