History

A variant name was "Soda Springs". [2] A post office called Sodaville was established in 1882, and remained in operation until 1917. [3]

Initially, a railroad station was intended to be at Sodaville, but an agreement between the railroad and land speculators could not be reached, so Mina, Nevada was platted two miles north of Sodaville. [4]
