Gillis Springs

Also known as Sargent's Well (and possibly Winwon Station), Gillis Springs was a station on the Wadsworth-Columbus Freight Route. 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).
