Excavations at Harmony Borax Works


Archeological work carried out at Harmony Borax Works in Death

Valley during the fall of 1976 was prompted by proposed management

activities which include stabilization of ruins and replacement of

fencing. Harmony Borax Works was the central feature in the opening

of Death Valley and the subsequent popularity of the Furnace Creek

area. The plant and associated townsite played an important role in

Death Valley history.
