(back) The Pony Express Started on April 3, 1860. The original route from Johnson Pass (Echo Summit) to Genoa went through Hope Valley to Woodfords Station.

On May 14, 1860 the new toll road over Daggett Pass opened to foot and horse traffic and was no used by the Pony Express through Lake Valley. Known as the Kingsbury Grade and built by David Kingsbury and John McDonald it was opened to wagon traffic on August 14, 1860.

A new station was needed and "Friday's" Station was used. This 320 acre site was first owned by Martin K. "Friday" Burke and John Washington Small. The station site can be seen across Highway 50 (the two story wood frame while building). It is 1,070 feet from here on a bearing of sixty degrees true north. ? 2004 Joe Nardone
