Visit a historic stage station located along the Oregon Trail and Pony Express Trails.

The Granger Stage Station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This place became a stage station in the 1850s. Many trails came through the Granger Station, including the Oregon Trail, California Trail, Mormon Pioneer Trail, Pony Express Trail, Overland Trail, and the northern route of the Cherokee Trail. Many home stations were built about 50 miles apart to assist travelers, and the Granger Station was one of them. This station was built with 2 foot thick walls made of cut native stone and lime sand mortar. Visitors could change horses, get a meal, fix their wagons, and take a break during their travels.

Horace Greeley and Mark Twain once visited the station. Horace Greeley was a well-known editor of the New York Tribune from the 1840s to the early 1870s. Mark Twain's 1872 novel Roughing It was partially based on his westward journey and his time prospecting. In the novel, he describes his stagecoach journey and some success mining for gold and silver. When the Union Pacific Railroad construction arrived in 1868, the stage station was full of workers who renamed the station to Granger.
