Bolivar Roberts was a division superintendent for the Pony Express and the station was named after him. John Fisher, later to become a prominent judge, was a Pony Express rider between Salt Lake and Roberts Creek. When the Overland Stage and the Pony Express stopped running, Roberts Creek became a successful ranching operation that it still is today. At Roberts Creek, nothing from the Pony Express era remains although there are some old log structures probably from a later time.
