Established by Charles Maisson and a group of French goldseekers in 1851. Gold discovered in nearby Long Gulch in that year. At one time 300 miners lived here and traded at store, ruins of which are west of this monument. Regular pack trains brought supplies here from Columbia, returning with newly mined gold. The Stanley Family came to ownership of this site in 1956.
