The town was named for Charles M. Schwab, and had several saloons, a blacksmith, a boarding house, and a general store. However, the town was taken over by three women who drove out the town's saloons, and as a result, most of Schwab's men, leading to the eventual decline of the town. The Stray Horse mine, which served the workers who lived in Schwab, still stands today, along with several buildings of the town, and items such as cans and shattered glass.
