Named after Major John Ebbett and pointed out in 1853 to surveyor G.H. Goddard who referred to it as a "route of great promise - probably the best one for a transcontinental railway."
No emigrant train used this route but a stage road was completed here in 1864 to serve the mining region of Silver City.
