Front desk lady less than friendly. Almost was annoyed we were there. No bother, we ignored her and went in. Loved the history of the place. Too much about each rider though, I would have rather bought a book if I cared. Would have liked...More

Despite the road works which disrupted our locating this fine sculpture, it was certainly worth the effort and is an evocative statue, truly capturing the spirit of the Pony Express and its riders.

This statue is located right next to the main activity area for the Eclipse events. The park is small but it's a nice place to take a picture of an important part of St. Joe/USA history.
