It was a placer-mining center settled by Chinese miners in 1849. This one page bill of sale signed by W. C. Goodwin reads in part: "For and in consideration of the sum of one hundred and fifty dollars to me in hand paid by M. McMan I do bargain and sell all my right title and interest in and to a certain mining claim situated on six bit gulch and known as six bit gulch fluming claim...". The paper has toned with age and there is a small tatty area at the upper left corner, else it is in good condition.
