The name of the town comes from the famous Beale Camel Expedition. Lieutenant "Ned" Beale stopped at the spring here in 1857 and named it Truxton in honor of either his brother Truxton or his mother, Emily Truxton Beale. Encircled by colorful and scenic terrain, this small community's roots stretch back to the Beale Wagon Trail.

A mine discovered in 1874 in Mojave County, started this town and in those early years there was plenty of cowboys for fighting and faro. Unlike the many places that became towns along the Oregon Trail, and the Santa Fe Trail of long ago, Route 66 is a more modern trail across the USA, and maybe it's last of a kind.
