Pony Express Territory Celebrates
Nevada's 150th Birthday. 
Pony Express Territory Is Planning A Very
"Eventful" 2014 To Honor This Special Occasion! 

Nevada's Sesquicentennial, the 150th anniversary of Nevada's admission to the Union, will provide opportunities for celebration and great Pony Express Territory events as we come together statewide to commemorate our very special and unique home. Nevada's one of a kind and diverse history will be celebrated throughout the state for an entire year in order to promote pride in the shared heritage of native and non-native Nevadans alike.

March's Featured Location: 
Stokes Castle near Austin, Nevada.

Stokes Castle, a three-story stone tower, is located just outside of Austin, Nevada. Started in the fall of 1896 and completed in June, 1897, by Anson Phelps Stokes, mine developer, railroad magnate and member of a prominent eastern family, as a summer home for his sons, principally J.G. Phelps. After the castle (or the tower, as the Stokes family always referred to it) was completed, it was used by the family for one brief period in June and July, 1897. Since then, with one possible exception, the structure has remained unoccupied. This iconic landmark is brightly lit at night as it welcomes travelers to the town of Austin.
