Death Valley Ghost Towns :
Greenwater was built around a copper strike made in 1905. Water had to be hauled into the town and was sold for $15 a barrel. The
town grew to a population of 2,000 and was known for its lively magazine, The
Death Valley Chuckwalla. By 1909 the mining had
collapsed without ever showing a profit and people left for other areas. There are no ruins left in Greenwater, which is located
south of Dante’s View
off the Greenwater Valley gravel road.
