Gold was discovered in 1904 but the mines were not particularly productive and after several years the site was abandoned.

The town included a wood-frame hotel, store, and saloons.


  • October 1904 – Gold was discovered in the Golden Arrow district and within months a number of mines were in operation, exploiting high-grade gold/quartz veins to depths of up to around 400′.
