1860-1861

A nearby plaque
commemorates the
passage in 1860-1861
of Pony Express riders
from Sacramento to
the San Francisco
terminus. They usually
rode river steamers,
but 20 times the Pony
Express took an
overland route as the
steamers did not run
on Sundays and
Occasionally the riders
were late. They came
through Benicia, via
ferry to Martinez, then
to Orinda and
Oakland, en route to
San Francisco.
