Inscription.  Discoverites of gold and silver in the early 1860s led to the founding of Peavine. Later it was re-named Poe City in honor of John Poe, but was referred to as Poeville or Podunk.

The districtís boom was brief lasting only four years. The main producing mines were the Poe, Paymaster, and the Golden Fleece. A ten stamp mill was in use during this time.
