This site is probably located one and one-half miles southeast of Ovid, in Sedgwick County, Colorado. Sources generally agree on the location of the Julesburg Station site and its identity as a Pony Express and stage station. [65] On the L. & P.P. Express Co. station list, it was probably called Upper Crossing, South Platte or Morrell's Crossing. In 1859, Jules Reni established a trading post at the site and served as stationkeeper for the Pike's Peak stage line and the Pony Express. [66] At Julesburg, Pony Express riders and stages crossed the South Platte and took the California Road/Overland Trail to Lodgepole Creek. [67]
