Significance: The Keys Desert Queen Ranch in the Joshua Tree National Monument is an outstanding historical site of desert-based vernacular technologies displaying a range of architectural and engineering artifacts associated with the Euro-American era of settlement in the Mojave desert. The site is largely intact with nine buildings and four ore mills surviving. The Machine Shop is a long low building used as a blacksmith ship and for the storage of food, two activities related to the self-reliant nature of the site.
