In September of 1849, with nary a white face among the natives who populated the area, a prospector by the name of Tom Palmer arrived here to open a mining claim on the Trinity River. After months of seeing some consistently satisfying returns, he expanded his operation on the river the following year by bringing in some outside help.

Among the new workers was a man called B. F. "Frank" Lewis, a "ragged orphan boy" Palmer had "picked up in some of the border towns" a few years before. The two men worked in tandem until the spring of 1851, when Palmer saw fit to set up a ferry operation on the Trinity River which he put Lewis in charge of. The propery last owned by "Cephus" Wood and the section of the river known previously as "Old Tucker's Place," along with the rapidly-growing community that encompassed it, was briefly called "Lewis Town," then forever after, Lewiston.
