Mojave River Valley Museum
Mohahve Historical Society
A stone hotel in Daggett that is now a registered landmark and under the direction of the San Bernardino County Museum. The building was erected around 1875 with two stories and with 2 foot thick stone walls for the first floor. There was a balcony on the second floor and a large glass dome above the two-story lobby. For several years since was known as the Railroad Eating House. In about 1883 it was operated by V. Van Driesen and in 1886 Seymour Alf was the operator. This was a favorite stopping place for Walter "Death Valley Scotty" Scott. It has survived three fires, the latest in 1908 which burned off the top story. The building has been closed for several years.
