Hot Springs was a stage stop during the 1870s. It took on additional importance in 1880 when the Nevada Central Railroad was completed and a ten-car siding along with a small railroad station was built there. A wood frame house, which still stands, was built as well as a barn, stone cabins, and corrals. A one-room schoolhouse was constructed in 1925 and children from Antelope Valley ranches came to school there until 1934. Hot springs was abandoned in 1938 when the railroad folded and the rails were pulled up. Today original buildings still stand. The hot springs have mostly gone dry.
