Established in 1908, Tobar was at first a Western Pacific Railroad construction camp. Following the normal progression of settlement in those days, the first structure was erected - A Bar. The owner put a sign up proclaiming his business was the Rag Saloon. Then, to make sure he got business, he trudged up to the railroad proper where he drove a stake in the ground and nailed up a board sign that said To Bar. Railroad officials, always looking for town names, promptly gave the place its name, Tobar.

By 1910, there were sixteen homesteads around the place with big plans to dry farm. By the next year Tobar was a small town with a population of 75 with 20 dwellings. Soon there was a school on nearby Munson Ranch and a post office opened on December 20, 1911. The settlement became a main shipping point for ore from Warm Springs and Spruce Mountain mines. Produce from Clover Valley was sent to markets from there. Things were moving fast. A.B. Hoaglin laid out a townsite and constructed a two-story hotel. Locals called it the White Elephant. To get there is a short drive south from Wells, Nevada on US 93, just 14 miles then turn left and continue for four miles to Tobar. ~
