Originally this area was known as Cottonwood, for the trees that grew along the creek. Gold was discovered here in 1851 by John Thomas, and many rich mines were located nearby, the "Brasswire Mine" and the "Jillson Mine" among them. The name was changed to "Henley" in 1856, in honor of the local senator.
