||In an effort to bring in revenue, in 1927 a the Pacific Borax Company rebuilt its company worker's quarters at Furnace Creek Ranch into a resort and also built the Furnace Creek Inn.|
The adobe bricks were built on site by Native Americans.
||As evidenced by the cattails you see here, a natural spring feeds water to both the Inn and Ranch sites. You can even find small fish in the creek all year.|
Furnace Creek has become a year-round resort, even with its -200 foot elevation.
The Ranch site also contains the Borax Museum where you can see mining tools, a barn that housed the famous 20-mule teams, and various vehicles used for early transportation in the valley.
Close by is the official Park visitors' center where you can see the history of the valley and browse through informative exhibits.
Just a short distance away from Furnace Creek is the Harmony Borax Works...
