Tecopa, California

Tecopa derived its name from Chief Tecopa, a Paiute Indian who was known as a peacemaker for his part in convincing the Paiute to refrain from attacking travelers on the Old Spanish Trail. Legend has it that Tecopa gave the springs to the county on one condition, that the springs would always be free to all. Also see: Ecology Death Valley Regional Geology Mining History Wilderness
