About Buckland Station:
Built in 1870 from materials from Fort Churchill, an army base that was abandoned in 1869, Buckland Station was a Pony Express stop, a supplier for western emigrants, a boarding house and a home for the Buckland family until 1885. Self-guided tours allow for a glimpse of early pioneer life in Nevada and a short video outlines the history of the Station and nearby Fort Churchill. Located across the highway is the Orchard Day Use Area which provides access to picnic tables and charcoal grills, as well as a 2.2-mile Nature Trail that parallels the Carson River and connects Buckland Station to Fort Churchill.
