Middlegate Station – Fallon, Nevada

Middlegate Station – Fallon, Nevada: Founded in 1857 by James Simpson, the restaurant that stands today was once an active station and rest stop along the historic Pony Express Trail, serving horses and their riders alike. Due to its location between two gate-like cuts in the mountains—known as Eastgate and Westgate—this station became�known as Middlegate Station.

Atlas Obscura seems to like me, though.

Seems like a good setting for an old-time western or a contemporary western mystery.
