The town was first established as a railway station in the early 1900s on the Eastern line to Kalgoorlie. The area was also a junction of the timberlines in the region. Firewood companies used the timberlines to collect firewood to provide the heat energy needed by condensers which in turn were used to make potable water from saline water. A progress association was formed following a unanimous decision by the townspeople in 1907 and a committee was elected at the same meeting. The town was gazetted in 1910
