Pole Creek No. 2 Station – The exact location of Pole Creek No. 2 Station site remains unknown. The name occurs in the 1861 Overland Mail Company contract, and some historians place the station along Lodgepole Creek near the town of Lodgepole, about halfway between Nine Mile Creek and Pole Creek No. 3. Historians also suggest a possible connection between this site and another, that was later occupied in 1865 by E. Farrell.
