This popular resort and stopping place for stages and teams of the comstock, established by Swift and Watson in 1856, became a remount station of the Central Overland Pony Express on April 4, 1860. Here on that date, division superintendent Bolivar Roberts waited with a string of mules to help pony rider Warren Upson through the snowstrom on Echo Summit.
