Sessions Wheeler describes Varyville as being on the Eastern side of the Black Rock Range, north of Hardin City. In 1886, Ladue Vary discovered gold and silver in a canyon about 30 miles west of Quinn River Crossing. It was reported that would not take less than $100,000. Vary never sold though he did lease the land to others who sucessfully recoverd ore. Vary lived on the property raising hay until 1906, when he was taken to Winnemucca due to his age. He died a year later at the age of 96.
