  1. A recent work by Anne J. Miller Ph. D., The Southern Emigrant Trail Through Riverside County, suggestS the a likely location of the Willow Springs Butterfield Mail station, in the now city of Murrieta. It was located about ‘half way’ between Temecula and Laguna Grande (Lake Elsinore) station locations in 1860. Your list notes Murrieta’s location out of sequence based on her research. It would come after Temecula’s station.

  2. Do we have any details on the Poso Creek Station? I’m trying to pin down the apparently little-known Poso Canal Company from the late 1930’s, and it may have leveraged the station from Butterfield. Thank you!
