From the guidebook:

This was the site of a popular road-house where the ponies of the Central Overland Pony Express were changed from July 1, 1860 to June 30, 1861. From here the route of the pony riders continued westward to Folsom and eastward to Placerville through Rescue, Dry Creek Crossing, and Missouri Flat.
