(Click on The Picture to Zoom)

While the Overland Stage Line helped open the West, the Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage Line serviced locations in South Dakota. Stagecoaches followed a 300-mile Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage Road carrying passengers and mail.
Horses were changed every lO miles or so, making it necessary to establish a number of stations along an established route. Stage Stops as Twelve Mile station, Log Cabin House and the Bulldog Ranch punctuated the journey.
