Inscription. After Montana's Gold Rushes began in 1862, thousands of miners came past here and a Beaver Canyon stage station was built here.

Freighters and travelers on stage lines from Salt Lake to Montana stopped at this station until Utah and Northern Railway service reached here in 1879. Large ranches also were supplied here until 1897 when they decided to move their Beaver Canyon town to a better site at Spencer.
