History

Wickahoney (also spelled Wickahony) was a stage stop. It was also once the home of the Dunning family, who established a ranch there in 1887, near Wickahoney Springs. It had a functioning post office and had ranches nearby. It provided a welcome rest along the stage route from Mountain City, Nevada to Mountain Home, Idaho[2].

The stage stop was built in the late 1890s and fell into disrepair and disuse when a change in the route was made in the 1930s.
