Beaver Creek Station - Hank Masons Grave

The Cheyenne-Deadwood Trail, a heritage precious to state and nation, was used by gold seekers and Black Hills emigrants from 1876 to 1887. Crossing U. S. Highway 16 at this point, it followed Stockade Beaver Creek passing Beaver Creek Stage Station and winding on to Deadwood via Canyon Springs Stage Station near present Camp Mallo.

From the Beaver Creek Station, 13 miles north of here, searchers hunted for the treasure coach robbed at Canyon Springs in 1878. This robbery was the only successful raid on a Black Hills treasure coach.

Between Beaver Creek and Canyon Springs Station, in a deep canyon, lies the grave of an old buffalo hunter. The headstone reads: "Hank Mason killed by a bear 1893".
