The 1875 cadastral survey plat, locates a cabin, springs, and connecting roads at a location along Six-Mile Creek. This, coupled with historic written accounts and knowledge that Pete Joyce built and occupied a log cabin at this location, suggests its use as a station house. It is on private land next to the road but nothing remains and no monument as well.

Fike and Headley locate this controversial station six miles from Willow Springs. They and the Settles are the only sources to list Willow Creek as a Pony Express stop. If it was a stop, then Pete Joyce's cabin on Six-Mile Creek possibly served as the station. Little more is known about the station.
