Bauvard was established in 1904 by the Southern Pacific Railroad. The town served as an engine terminal for trains traveling on the newly completed Lucin Cutoff. A number of buildings were created to house railroad workers and shops for engine repairs. The town lived for two years when the Southern Pacific moved its facilities to Montello. Only sunken cellars remain to mark the location of where Bauvard once stood.Submitted by: HBC
