Notes
Survey number HABS CA-2257-B
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-152).
Building/structure dates: 1927
Building/structure dates: 1931 subsequent work
Significance: Construction of the Guest House began in October 1927. Work continued intermittently through 1931 when all construction at Death Valley Ranch was suddenly halted, leaving some sections, particularly in the basement, unfinished. Its brown and beige stucco exterior, red clay tile roof and highly decorative use of hand-forged metal, "antiqued" wood and colored tile make this structure an integral part of the Death Valley Ranch complex.
