Wightman Well

Wightman Well, also known at various times as Hunt or Winter Sheep Camp, was a station on the Wadsworth-Columbus Freight Route located about a mile and a half from the mouth of Fourmile Canyon. This Freight Route was active from 1873-1882 and served as a connection from the Southern Pacific Railroad in Wadsworth to Candelaria, Marietta, Columbus and the surrounding region. The trip was about 130 miles and took eight days to complete (each way). Since then, it has been utilized as a watering location for cattlemen in the area.
