Cape Horn Station

While the Overland Mail Company and Pony Express shared the same route across much of Nevada, the two deviated between Dry Creek and Simpson Park. The Overland took a longer, southern route, which facilitated the construction of Cape Horn Station around 1861. There is very little documentation of the station, but it presumably was used until 1869 when the Transcontinental Railroad led to its obsolescence. Only faint rock foundations remain.
