Gothenburg is located in the Interstate that runs east to west at the north end of the state.The town has a number of old historical houses and buildings, however it was the Pony Express Station that got us to leave the Interstate for a few minutes.Did you know the Pony Express operated for only 18 months and ran from Missouri to California. Riders as young as 11 years of age were paid $25 a week to carry the mail While the station has been moved from its original site to a Gothenburg park. Admission is FREE. The old Sun Theater was operated as an opera house from 1909 to 1926 and later became a movie theater where the cost to see a movie was 10 cents for children and 20 cents for adults.It is currently operated as movie theater for week end movie showings. The First Presbyterian Church is an interesting building built in 1907 at a cost of $5650.A listing of many of the old houses is available at the Chamber of Commerce, 11th and Lake Ave.
