This small mining camp rests at the northern end of the Simpson Mountains. As the same implies, springs exist near the townsite providing a year round water source. It's rumored this canyon was once part of the Overland Stage Route, which simply wouldn't make much sense as Simpson Springs to the north was a far more direct route and also had know water. Mining in the 1890's brought miners and merchants to the canyon. Town is said to have consisted of several boarding houses, a store and a saloon in addition to several private cabins and mines. The largest producing mine in the area was the OK Mine, a silver mine part of the Erickson Mining District. Other mines include the Keystone-Brooklyn Mine, Indian Cheif & Silver Reef Mine.
