The townsite is located along Cloverdale Rd. for 0.7 of a mile. Established in 1849, the town grew quickly to 1,500 residents, including 600 Chinese closeby. The Hardscrabble mine began operations in 1853, served by the Dry Creek Tunnel and Fluming Co.'s twenty-two mile long ditch constructed by Chinese labor. When the Hardscrabble's hydraulic operations threatened to destroy the town in 1866, may white residents moved across Conger Gulch to the newly established town of Igo. The Chinese population remained engaged in both mining and vegetable gardening. The town was saved from destruction by the passage of the anti-debris act which limited hydraulic mining. The Chinese stayed until the early 1920's when the last two residents died. In 1907, the water rights of the Dry Creek Tunnel and Fluming Company transferred to the Happy Valley Land and Water Company which extended the ditch system providing agricultural water for the Happy Valley area. Behind this monument is the extension ditch.
