Scotty's Castle

& the Death Valley Ranch

Flambouyant, smooth-talking, and slick, Death Valley Scotty convinced millionaire Albert Johnson to build an estate out in Death Valley. In 1924, construction began on a Moorish-style mansion that was intended to be the winter home of the Johnsons but, Scotty enthusiastically led many to believe that it was his personal domain. Costing over $2.5 million, the innovative "castle" was never completed.

"The hall of fame is going up. We're building a Castle that will last a thousand years. As long as there's men on earth, likely, these walls will stand here." -- Death Valley Scotty
