Here in 1850 "Doc" Baker established a stopping place for emigrants on what became known as the Nobles Trail. George and Anna Marie Dersch bought out Baker and homesteaded the land in 1861. Tenants of the Dersches were responsible for whipping three indian laborers working on the potato harvest at the ranch. As a result of this incident, Indians raided the property in 1866 fatally wounding Mrs. Dersch. In retaliation, a posse was formed and killed most of the Indians at their Dry Creek camp.
