Julesburg is a historic town located on the old Overland Trail in northeastern Colorado. Julesburg was also the site of a Pony Express station in those days. To this point in time, Julesburg has been washed away by the South Platte River and rebuilt 4 times. It's the northernmost town in Colorado, being less than 1 mile south of the Nebraska border. One story says the name comes from the owner of thr first trading post built in the area: one Jules Beni. Another story says Jules Beni was a notorious horse thief in the area, finally caught and killed by Jack Slade, a superintendent for the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company (parent company of the Pony Express).
