Pony Express: Friday's Station
At this point the riders of the Central Overland Pony Express crossed the Nevada-California line. Three-quarters
of a mile east of here, at Edgewood in Nevada, are the remains of the most easterly remount station of the California
Division of the Pony Express. Established about 1858 by Friday Burke and James Small as a stage station on the
Placerville-Carson City Road, it became the home station of pony rider Bob Haslam until October 26, 1861 when the
Pony Express was succeeded by the Transcontinental Telegraph.
