Box Elder Creek Station - Pony Express

Located 10 miles from Lapierelle Station and 10 miles from Deer Creek Station south of Box Elder Creek.

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]
