During the late 1800s, difficult travel and lack of housing did not discourage people from visiting the springs. Upon their arrival, some people pitched tents, while others cut temporary dugouts into the hillsides. Travelers entering the valley saw the smoke from the numerous wood stoves and named this area "Smoky Row."
Although some of the graves are marked, little is known of those who were buried in "Smoky Row" Cemetery during the 1890s. This burial site was no longer used after a new cemetery was established north of Thermopolis in 1900. The metal cross was created for the cemetery by a local blacksmith.
