A spring of carbonated water, locally known as Vichy, bubbled up here beside the Alamitos Creek. When the distant Buena Vista Shaft penetrated the 2100 foot level in 1882, the spring ceased flowing. San Francisco banker F.L.A. Pioche and others commercially bottled the water as a cure-all for the sick and thirsty. When bottled, the water lost its carbonation and the venture also went flat financially.
