See also: Sand Spring. Cold Springs.

Populated Place. Also known as Soda Springs, reached by the Carson & Colorado Railroad on December 1, 1881, was a resting place, a popular resort, and a major freighting point.

Astragalus lentiginosus Douglas var. sesquimetralis (Rydb.) Barneby, the Sodaville milk-vetch, was previously listed at Threatened by the US Fish and Wildlife service in 1992. The taxon occurs at (Big) Sand Spring, Inyo County, California, Sodaville, Mineral County, Nevada, and Cold Springs, Nye County, Nevada. Following incorporation of the Sand Spring site into Death Valley National Park and action to protect the population from wild burros, the Fish and Wildlife Service withdrew the proposed rule to list the taxon as Threatened (Fish and Wildlife Service, 1998).
