Huxley was a station on the Southern Pacific Railroad after it was re-routed through Hazen in 1902. It became the shipping point for the Desert Crystal Salt Works, which had shipped from the station at White Plains prior to the re-route. Salt production lasted from the early 1870s until 1915.

Also at Huxley, a lime kiln was erected in 1910 to derive lime from a limestone deposit just to the north. A small amount was shipped to the Pacific coast for agricultural uses, and the kiln was abandoned by 1915.
