Many pioneers passed through St Joseph before joining the Oregon and California Trails. For a while it was the western end of railroads and telegraph wire. In 1860, it was headquarters for the Pony Express.

Today, St Joseph (on the Missouri River 50 miles north of Kansas City) is a sleepy place, filled with reminders of past wealth and glories. Photographs sample the downtown, historic districts, and Pony Express Re-Ride.
