Pony Express statue, St. Joseph, Mo.

The Pony Express statue, in downtown St. Joseph, commemorates the mail service that linked the U.S. from St. Joseph (in MU Extension's Northwest Region) to Sacramento, Calif. Riders carried mail nearly 1,900 miles each way between April 1860 and October 1861. The statue was sculpted by Hermon Atkins MacNeil and dedicated in 1940.
