Alexander Majors built this house in 1856 and ran his business from its first floor office. The house was restored in 1984 and filled with period furnishings. The barn and blacksmith shop were rebuilt. Tour the facilities and see Conestoga freighting wagons, tools and equipment of the time. There are often living-history events - see the website for dates and times.

Majors organized the Pony Express and the Central Overland Stage Company. He ran the freighting operations of Russell, Majors and Waddell - the largest freighting firm in the nation. He gave Buffalo Bill Cody his first job.

Open March thru December.
