Overview: In 1881 Borax was discovered in Death Valley. Soon after, the Greenland Ranch was constructed at this site in Furnace Creek, CA, to support the borax workmen and the twenty mule teams. Francis Marion Smith acquired this present site of Furnace Creek Ranch for his company- U.S. Borax. They produced borax in Death Valley until 1927. The Borax Museum was setup in 1954 in the oldest structure in the valley, built about 1883. A very interesting outdoor walk "back in time" of Death Valley history.
