Box Springs was another railroad stop on the Eureka-Nevada railroad. The stop was for people heading for the Union and Diamond mining districts to the southeast. A small camp grew up around the tracks and had a population of around twenty-five. This was in 1874. Things remained steady until the mid 1880s when Union began to fade. By the 1890s, Box Springs returned to its original function as a siding and remained so until 1938 when the rails were torn up. Nothing remains to mark the site.
