If you need to know about the history of the Rand District, you're in luck. You're going to find a true desert gem in the "real live ghost town" of Randsburg (Eastern Kern County, California): The Rand Desert Museum.

For a small museum it was packed full of historical artifacts. Well worth a visit. Make sure to leave a donation to help keep this valuable resource alive.
