In 1931, a station situated on the Upper 96 Ranch, four miles east of Fort McPherson in Lincoln County, was given to the city. The station was moved to Ehmen Park in focal Gothenburg. A moment station is still in its unique area, on the Lower 96 Ranch four miles south of Gothenburg; it is available to the general population on a restricted premise.
