Early day travelers used the clearing west of this sign as a stop-over and resting place during their journeys from Lost Prairie, Flora, Paradise and other points north to Elgin. Travel was by saddle horse, stagecoach, or wagon. It was known as the Sled Springs Station and was operated for several years before 1900 and to about 1925. In later years this same area was the site of a railroad logging camp. About 300 people lived in the vicinity.
