Rock Creek Station State Historic Park

. Description:  Originally built in 1857, it evolved into a road ranch on the Oregon Trail, and  was used as a stagecoach  station and Pony Express swing station, as well as the location of a toll bridge. This was the site of a fight that began the legend of "Wild Bill" Hickok.  Now there is an interpretive center and work is underway to reconstruct buildings and corrals.
