Garden Station

The exact identity and location of this site remains unknown, in Phelps County, about six miles southwest of Elm Creek. Sources give the site several different names, including Garden, Shakespear's, Sydenham's Ranche, Biddleman's Ranch, and Platte Stage Station. The 1861 Overland Mail Company contract listed the station as Garden. Garden station may be between Craig/Shakespear and Seventeen Mile Stations but the Garden and Craig Stations could be the same. Nevertheless, in 1865, the station was evidently destroyed by fire. (NPS)
