Mahala was a small station five miles southeast of Hazen on the Southern Pacific Railroad's Fallon branch (built 1906-07). Cantaloupes were shipped from here by farmers on the Swingle Bench. Supposedly, it was named by railroaders for Indian women in the area, perhaps being derived from the Paiute language. Mahala appeared on maps from 1906 until 1924.

Nothing remains along the railroad tracks at Mahala, but a shack stands just across the highway from the site.
