A primarily Indian reservation, Duckwater is home to some whites that originally settled there in 1868. Indians occupied the site long before the Europeans came to America. The small town gradually became primarily Shoshone and by the turn of the century, the population was approximately one hundred and has remained at that figure ever since. The reservation now contains more than 3,700 acres. A number of older buildings still remain among newer ones. Submitted by: HBC
