Mormon Station was originally settled by Mormon pioneers and served as a respite for travelers on the California Trail. The park features a replica of the 1851 trading post stockade and a museum with pioneer artifacts and exhibits about the station's history. The reconstructed structures were begun in 1947 with $5,000 provided by the Nevada Legislature. Legislation transferred management of the property to the Division of State Parks in 1955. The site is managed by the Western Nevada Region of Nevada State Parks. It is listed as Nevada Historical Marker 12.
