The first prospectors arrived in the North Moccasin Mountains in the late 1870's. However, it wasn't until the late 1890's that significant gold deposits were discovered and by 1898 serious development of lode mining began. The mining camp of Kendall developed near the mines. The town was named after Harry T. Kendall, a local miner and claim owner. The first mill in Kendall was built in 1900.
Kendall was reported to be a strong producer of gold and mining in the district continued until 1941 when all gold mining was halted by presidential order due to the onset of World War 2.
