(Site 11 Miles Northeast)

First station after leaving Ozona on the San Angelo-Ozona mail line. Here, at the 20-mile point of an 86-mile run, fresh horses awaited. The stand, built in 1902, served one of Texas' last commercial stage lines.

Ten horses were kept here, as at the three other stations: Shoeingstand (where the horses were reshod each six weeks), Sherwood, and Knickerbocker.

Frequent riders were whiskey drummers (peddlers), lightning rod salesmen and preachers.

Automobiles (1908) and finally the railroad (1910) put the "hacks" on this line out of business.
