St. Joseph & The Transcontinental Railroad – Tuesday Night Talks

February 21, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Pony Express Museum is preparing its 25 th year of sponsoring Tuesday Night Talks. The program has become a popular and educational event in the community in January and February each year. Joseph K. Houts, Jr., TNT Chairman stated, “After 25 years, the public response to the lecture series has been phenomenal, which is why it has been so successful.” Our line up of speakers is exciting and looking forward to our normal talks in January/February. These talks
give those in attendance a chance to hear authors, historians, and lecturers on a wide range of topics. Admission is free and light refreshments are served to all guests. Doors open at 6:15 pm and speakers begin at 7 pm. The museum and social time are warm and inviting. What better place to be on a cold Tuesday night? You’re sure to see a familiar face and make new friends!
