Homansville was a small mining town established in 1872 at the head of Homansville Canyon, two miles northeast of Eureka. It was named for Sheppard Homans, a member of Captian J.W. Gunnison’s party during the 1870’s. The population was about 300.

The town was abandoned prior to 1900 and today is a ghost town site.
