This old Gem Water Pump was found on the historic Bingham-Waggoner Estates. In the early days (1828-1878) wagon trains passed by this location using it as a short cut to the Santa Fe Trail. As a result the location had many owners hoping to make a profit selling goods to the settlers. Some made significant contributions to the area. In 1999 wagon swales were found on the south end of the property suggesting considerable wagon traffic through the area.
