Marysville Pony Express Museum Photos

As promised yesterday, I'm including here three photos I took at the Pony Express Museum to "tease" you a bit to hopefully encourage you to visit Marysville. By the way, this is one of five neat museums in Marysville. I have photos to share of two more of them, later.

A series of dioramas highlight the history of Marysville, above shows Mr. and Mrs. Marshall and some of their "stuff." There are several of these on the balcony level. Nice variety of displays.

This is a photo of a painting on the wall of the original ferry across the Big Blue River that made Marshall rich, initially.

Finally, this is neat display from the 150th anniversary of the Pony Express. A good variety - many more not even hinted at here. Stop by and see it for yourself!

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)

Hi Dr. Bill! Thanks for the kinds words. It was a beautiful race through the countryside of the Flint Hills. Through the thin veneer of what some would call boring landscape is pure heavenly bliss. Some just need to look a little harder and explore it further. It has so much to offer.
