Cold Springs Station

This is all that remains of what was once an important stagecoach stop in Cold Springs, Nevada. Built as part of John Butterfield’s stagecoach line along the Simpson route, it was later used for the same purpose by Wells, Fargo and Company. Here, they could get fresh horses and there were repair and blacksmithing services as well. About a hundred yards away are the ruins of a transcontinental telegraph station and about a mile away was an old Pony Express stop. What an interesting place here in what is now just the middle of nowhere.
