Desert Ghost Towns:
El Paso Mountains

Cudahy Camp



The 700 foot high pumicite outcropping in El Paso Mountains was between 1923 and 1947 the source for 'Old Dutch Cleanser', known throughout the U.S. for its cleaning properties. The mine entrance is remniscent of a scene in a gothic fantasy. The camp itself has been reduced to concrete foundations. At this location, 12 men produced 100 tons of pumicite per week.
