Significance: The Garage was the first building designed and constructed at Death Valley Ranch and one of the first few that were designed by Johnson himself. It housed a wide variety of vital functions that ranged from living and office space to religious services. The Bunk House and "Long Shed" were added to the Garage in response to the constantly expanding plans for construction and the growing need for additional living and work space. They, unlike most of the adjoining Garage, were not remodeled in the "Spanish Mediterranean" style and illustrate the original finishes and strict rectangularity conformed to by Johnson.
