The only Pony Express station remaining unaltered in its original location, this station was built by G.H. Hollenberg to function as both his home and his place of business. The business was supported by the busy traffic on the Oregon Trail.

The six downstairs rooms in the building housed the store, an unofficial post office, a tavern and family living quarters. The upstairs served as a common sleeping room for Pony Express and stage line employees.
