Like many Nevada hot springs, these dot a fault break along which the mountains rise.In 1862, along this Carson branch of the emigrant trail, David and Harriet Walley developed a $100,000 spa with 11 baths, a ballroom and gardens. The thermal waters (136˚ to 160˚)became well known as a cure of "Theumatism and Scrofulous Affections".It sold for a mere $5,000 in 1896, but functioned as a hotel until 1935 when it burned. Its former cool cellar you see is still in use.In 1962, trial hydro-thermal power poles were drilled here as deep as 1,250': Maximum temperature 181.
