Toulon was founded in 1916 when a large mill was constructed to treat tungsten, gold and silver ore from mines at Nightingale. The mill would continue to operate until 1918, although later it would be turned into a white arsenic plant. It also had a station on the Southern Pacific Railroad. It was likely named after a Mediterranean seaport in France.
