Ashford Mill Ruins, Death Valley National Park
The ruins of Ashford Mill on right on Badwater Road and easy to find. Several structures still exist and it was interesting to wonder around. There is a picnic table and pit toilet at the site. The mill was constructed to process the ore from a claim of the three Ashford brothers. Over 30 years the brothers worked the claim and leased it out time to time but the quality of the ore never yielded much.
This site is at the southern end of the park. Nice to see if you are already heading that way but not really worth a special drive to see.
Located at the southern end of the Valley, this industrial-archaeological monument marks the site were minerals were processed for shipment.
