Little is known about the history of Box Elder Creek Station other than several sources agree that it served as a Pony Express station. [7] A man named Wheeler managed station operations at Box Elder, which probably also served as a passenger/mail stage stop under the 1861 Overland Mail Company contract. Franzwa does not indicate that Box Elder Station served specifically as a Pony Express station, but he plotted a station with this name on his maps. [8]
