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.
