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.
