Marysville Pony Express Barn
In 1859, Joseph H. Cottrell and Hank Williams built a stone barn in Marysville, Kansas. In 1860, they contracted with Russell, Majors, & Waddell to lease the barn as a livery stable for the Pony Express. The north end of the structure served as a blacksmith shop and stalls were on the other side.
This stable now serves as a museum. The Pony Express station was located in the Barrett Hotel, on the corner of Eighth Street and Broadway about one block north of the stable.Marysville Pony Express Barn
