Amos is a historical populated place near the junction of 140 and U.S. 95.

Thompson and West (1881) state that the following happened in 1865: "On the fifteenth of April succeeding the events narrated, four parties succeeded in surprising a camp of Indians near Kane Springs. They charged in among the redskins, dealing death right and left, and brought away with them eighteen scalps as trophies of their work."[1]

Bancroft (1890) lists Cane Spring as one of the towns and settlements in Humboldt County.[2].

The Amos Post Office was in operation from Jan 1889 - Apr 1890 & Mar 1898 - Dec 1926.[3]
