A forty-car siding was constructed by the Nevada Central Railroad in 1880 and a small settlement formed. A school was built and was used until 1914. The siding was used until 1938. Only a few collapsed wooden buildings mark the site today. Hundreds of railroad ties still embedded in the railroad right-of-way mark the Nevada Central Railroad. Scorpions call the site home.
