Isn't it ironic that someone can live somewhere where it gets up to 134 degrees Fahrenheit?


It's called Death Valley.


First comes history:


Four Native American cultures were known to have lived here the last 10,000 years but


people mostly talk about one. the first known group to live there are the


nevares spring troop. They arrived 9,000 years ago when there were still small lakes in Death


Valley. A much milder climate persisted at that time. Also large animals were still plentiful so


they could still hunt thats how they survived. Now I will talk about Early Tourism.


The first documented tourist facilities in Death Valley were a set of tent houses built in the


1920's. People urged to build resorts around the natural springs. In 1927 pacific coast borax


turned the crew quarters of its furnace creek ranch into a resort. The spring at furnace creek


was built to develop the resort. As the water was diverted the surrounding marshes and


wetlands started to shrink. Now we'll talk about The category we think we found treasure.


The easiest think to collect at this time was salts, borare, and talc. Borax was found by


Rosie and Aaron winters in 1881. Later that same year the eagle borax became death valleys


first commercial borax operation. William Coleman built the harmony borax works plant and


began to process ore in late 1883. This mining and smelting company produced borax to


make soap and for industrial uses. Now We are going to talk about protection and later


history. President Herbert Hoover proclaimed Death Valley a national monument February


11,1993. Setting aside almost two million acres of Southern California aside. But twelve


companies worked in Death Valley. Using civilian conservation corps during the Great


Depression. They built barracks graded 500 miles of roads, installed water, and


telephonelines, also erected at total of 500 buildings too. We're those topics intristing to you,


you decide.Wasn't this interesting?Then look into this monument more because that's not all


the history,there's a lot more information than you think.
