George Parker built a two-story log station near Bullwhack Summit in the early 1890s that served as an exchange station for stage, mail, and freight teams. The station was an important stop on the Toano-Pioche stage line. Today the station is still partially standing, but it does not appear that the structure will survive too many more winters.
