Historic Lucin was established as a section station on July 6th, 1875. A nearby rail station originally held the name "Lucin," but the name and the services were relocated here to Historic Lucin. It also served as a freight station, supplying the Grouse Creek Mountains during a mining boom in the 1870s. The site was completely dry, so water was brought in from Thousand Spring Valley, near the Nevada-Utah border. Artifacts observed on the site suggest both Euroamerican and Chinese inhabitants. Unfortunately, uncontrolled collecting and looting of artifacts have badly damaged the site. Please leave any artifacts where you find them.

In 1904, the name "Lucin" was moved once more. It was given to the facilities serving the western end of the new Lucin Cutoff. A maintenance station and small community just south of here still bears the name. At that time, this station was renamed Grouse. It was finally dismantled by the railroad in 1907.
