shouted a small band of hardy pioneers in August of 1857. A spring of cool, clear water near this very spot. Abundant drinking water was a strong factor in search for a place to settle. They soon agreed that they had indeed found an ideal place and laid claim to the area for the town site which they chose to name Eureka!
