Dayton Pony Express Centennial Marker

Wandering home after this year's Petersen Shootout, this is one of the places I stopped. I visited five Nevada State historical markers [Buckland's Station #192, Camels in Dayton #199, Halls Station #200, Chinatown #163 and Dayton #7] and three Pony Express Markers [Nevada Station, Dayton and Fort Churchill] and wandered through the Fort Churchill ruins.

A list of Pony Express Waymarks that I have visited can be found here. You can log your visit to this landmark at

Dayton was an important point on the Pony Express route. The site of the old station is approximately 200 yards northwest near the old firehouse.
