Seneca Station - Pony Express
Sources generally agree about Seneca Station's location and identity as an early Pony Express home station, also known as the the Smith Hotel.  John Smith managed station operations at the hotel, located on the corner of present-day Fourth and Main Streets. Smith entered the hotel business in 1858, and his two- story white hotel also served as a restaurant, school, and residence.  Additional sources also identify Seneca as an overland stage station.
