BEST TIME TO VISIT: Anytime.
COMMENTS: Was a stop on a stage route at one time.
REMAINS: Nothing but trees.

The stage line heading north to the booming mining town of Ray ran through Frazier Wells where passengers could rest before the final leg of the journey to Ray. A few small businesses housed in tents included a saloon and a small food store. When Ray ceased to exist around 1903 so did Frazier Wells. Today a few tall trees mark the site of the former stage stop. During the summers, the spring tends to dry up completely. But the site is an excellent resting spot for it offers the only shade for miles around.. Submitted by: HBC
