The city's recorded history begins with the arrival of the Spanish in 1769. After the exodus of the Spanish in 1850 with the US win of the Mexican war, a sailor man named John Frazier dug a well and sold water at the train station. Frazier dug a second well and the "lab" testing showed that it was chemically similar to the famous Spa in Karlsbad of the Czech republic.
