The Overland Stagecoach was an important part of the history of transportation to the west. The need for an overland stage route was recognized by congress as a means of transporting mail, freight and passengers. The Butterfield route, which was also called the Ox Bow route, ran south from St. Louis through El Paso, Texas to Yuma, California then up to San Francisco, California. The cost of a one way ticket was 200 and the trip took 25 days.
