This was a quick stop. Not that much to see, but tells a lot about history of the area. It was a quick walk around with designated walking areas. It is amazing how people could survive out in Death Valley. If you have time, I'd at least go to one of the borax factories.

Great job preserving the site and interesting signs to explain how they used to mine and process borax.

Conveniently located near Furnace Creek. Good for history buffs. Short paved walk to old borax mine operation. Interesting preserved freight wagons.

What history. If you stop here and then go to the museum at Furnace Creek you'll get an idea of what the settlers did to make life work. Amazing history
