Description
The Johnsons and Scotty at Death Valley's Scotty's Castle. Albert Johnson's wife, Scotty and Albert Johnson sit on comfortable chairs and a couch. Formerly called Death Valley Ranch, Scotty's Castle was built, but never completed, in the 1920s. Flamboyant cowboy, storyteller, Walter Scott, convinced Chicago millionaire Albert Johnson to invest in his (fraudulent) gold mine in the Death Valley area. Johnson actually spent time vacationing and recuperating from illness at the property, which is now a museum.
