Chapter Six:
DIVISION THREE: STATIONS BETWEEN HORSESHOE CREEK AND SALT LAKE CITY

INTRODUCTION

Division Three of the Pony Express National Historic Trail consisted of forty-six stations. This division was the second largest division of the Central Overland California & Pike's Peak Express Company or Pony Express. Only Division Five surpassed Division Three in numbers of stations. Division Three went from Horseshoe Creek, Wyoming, across the vast stretches of Wyoming's high desert landscape to Great South Pass and through the Rocky Mountains and then southwest to the Wyoming Basin and to Green River, and then through the Wasatch Range to Salt Lake City, Utah. This chapter discusses the use of each station during the days of the Pony Express, as well as any existing artifacts and/or buildings associated with the stations.
