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 Tack House is currently used to store tack equipment such as bridles and harnesses, but originally it was a tank of cyanide used in the processing of gold ore.
