As you make your way across Converse County, keep an eye out for historic trail markers!

Five pioneer era trails came through the county including the Oregon, Mormon Pioneer, Pony Express, California and Bozeman trails.

Look for signs as you travel across Converse County like the one shown which denotes a place where the original Pony Express riders once thundered through bringing mail across the Western Frontier.

Glenrock was once home to Deer Creek Station, an important stop along the trails in early years and a telegraph relay point following the demise of the Pony Express.
