Description
The kitchen in Scotty's Castle. The original furniture and handmade tile fills the room. Pots, pans and dishes line the shelves. Formerly called Death Valley Ranch, it 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.
