Hollenberg Pony Express Station

Hollenberg Pony Express Station, also known as Cottonwood Pony Express Station, is now located on Hollenberg Ranch State Park. Built by Gerat H. Hollenberg in 1858, this cabin was associated with the Oregon and California Trails, the Pony Express, and the Butterfield Overland Mail. Hollenberg traded with emigrants on the trails, operated the westernmost Pony Express station in Kansas, and provided relay services for the Overland Mail. The building has never been moved and retains its original dimensions.

It is operated by the Kansas Historical Society as Hollenberg Pony Express Station State Historic Site.
