Amargosa Opera House, Death Valley

by Jorge Moro September. 14, 2018 492 views

Driving from Vegas out to Death Valley you come to a "T" intersection. What is directly in front of you? The Amargosa Opera House. Nothing else... Just this Opera House literally in the middle of the desert, at a town called "Death Valley Junction". Population 20. Restaurants: 0, Gas stations: 0, Opera House: 1.

Originally owned by the Borax Mining Company this was "the place" for the miners who toiled at the Death Valley Borax mines. I couldn't even imagine the extreme working conditions in that heat.... And yeah... I LOVE doors, and windows - the older the better; this is a long-term project I've been working on for quite some time. One day it'll be finished.
