|Cribbs Station was located west of Fort Belknap on Cribbs Station Creek five miles north of Murray and three miles south of Proffitt. The location is known as the Fisher ranch pasture which is on private property.
Cribbs Station was the first stop for the Butterfield Overland Mail Route coaches after leaving Fort Belknap. It was at this stop that horses were exchanged for mules on the stage for the trip west.
Ben Cribbs ran the stable and a general store.
