Henry

Henry was a depot and water stop on the Oregon Short Line established in 1925. It was named for Henry Harris, who was a black foreman for the Sparks-Harrell Cattle Company. Harris originally came from Texas, and was then greatly admired for his knowledge of the cattle industry when he relocated to Elko County. Due to its proximity to local ranches, a school operated at Henry in the 1930s and 40s, but the station was abandoned long before 1978 when the Oregon Short Line stopped operation.
