Thirty-Two-Mile Station Historical Site


category : National Register
Constructed in 1860, Thirty-two-Mile Creek Station, or Clarke's Ranch, was a "home" station on the famed Pony Express Route, providing meals as well as fresh horses. The establishment, operated by George A. Comstock, consisted of at least one long single-story building, although stables and other facilities were probably also constructed. After the end of the Pony Express in the fall of 1861, Thirty-two-Mile Creek served briefly as a stage station. The station was burned by Indians in the summer of 1864.
