Wagner Springs is located on Soldier Meadow Road near Wheeler Ranch.
Wagner Springs is possibly named for a John Wagner who accompanied Louis Gerlach in 1902. Alternatively, perhaps it was named after Richard Wagner or W. M. Wagner, who are listed in the 1925 Washoe County Directory.
Stovepipe Springs might be another name for Wagner as Stovepipe appears on the Holt & Gibbs 1862 California and Nevada Map.
