Actually within the larger park to the original Morman settlers - its is an interesting stop. The monument itself is a true work of art, near it is an old house and it is all surrounded by "prairie" with a backdrop of mountains

This is a tribute to those men who put their lives in danger to deliver the mail. The statute is very detailed with facial expressions and horse structure. There is a replica station that show how small the men were back then. This is a...More

Salt Lake City was, apparently, a key hub for the pony express....and it probably played an important communications role for the area during it short time in 'business.' Neat monument.

This small but well-done and informative monument is one of several that sits along the driveway leading up to This is the Place Heritage Park. It's definitely worth a few minutes of your time to stop on your way to the park and read about...More
