Mortar holes and rock paintings mark this as a one time Indian habitation. Gold and silver prospectors found the spring flowing as late as the 1920s. One of them, Gus Lederer, gave up roving and became known as "Mayor of Corn Springs." He lived in a cabin, grew vegetables, left the area clear of litter and assisted travelers.
