Remains:

Methodist minister and prospector John Lewis Dyer, better known as “Father” Dyer, built a cabin in a secluded location along the upper reaches of Indiana Creek in January 1881. He was soon joined in his seclusion by miners and merchants connected to the nearby Warrior’s Mark mine. The community named itself after its first resident, Father Dyer.
