This is still an active natural springs well that is being utilized by the Indian Wells Restaurant and Indian Wells Brewing Company, which by the way makes soda too.
The plaque reads:
After five days' travel from the Argus Range, the Manly-Jayhawker parties of 1849 found their first water at this Indian waterhole on the Joseph R. Walker Trail of 1843. During the 1860s, this was the site of a stage and freight station for traffic between Los Angeles and the Coso and Cerro Gordo Mines.

Freeman Junction is evidence of what abandonment, decay, weather and scavengers can do that robs a historical site. All that remains is a Historical Marker that the state of California erected so we would not forget what was here once, Thank goodness! Back in the 1920’s there was supposedly a homestead of Clare Miley and by the next century a restaurant, gas station, and other type of structures that graced this corner of Highway 178 and 14 at one time. Freeman Junction was when explore Joseph Walker in 1834 heard of these extensive Indian trails that were created by them so they could converge with other tribes to trade their goods. He scouted for the army extensively looking for a snow free pass through the Sierras. He returned several more times bringing in settlers and expeditions. Soon pioneers were using the trail to seek out a new life or escaping Death Valley. There was a watering station house built by Freeman Raymond not far from here next to natural spring called Coyote Hole used by teams and settlers passing through here. Seems to be some conflict with certain historians when this station officially gained its name either around 1889 when a post office was constructed or when the Los Angeles Aqueduct was being built in 1906. Raymond passed around 1909 and the post office was moved to Richardo Ranch in Red Rock Canyon, now a state park. The elements eventually claimed the rest of station in a flash flood around 1909. I guess this corner was not to have any historical building left behind. So sits the marker as a reminder of what pioneer perseverance will do to get them where they want to go.

This is a seafood and steak restaurant located along the Hwy 14 is one of those places that people either love or dislike. I have look at some of the comments and most say it is overpriced. I know of many friends who have eaten here that liked the food and didn't mind the price. So it is one of those places to keep an open mind.

This is a really neat antique and gift store. It is not a very big establishment, but it's sure packed with loads of different home decor items. It also has paintings of some local artist. I loved exploring and of course I found this really neat horse head sculpture for my home decor. It's beautiful! You cannot miss all the neat items they put out on the sidewalk to catch your eye or the murals outside the buildings are pretty cool too!

Favorite thing: History is not really define when this little airport started. I surmise it began after WWII when some of the lucky pilots who where able to acquire some really neat war planes started using a dirt runway that soon revolved into a more upscale airport with an actual paved run way. It is when after much experimentation in the 1950's, that enabled this airport to get some interest. Joe and Sue Kilgore in the 1960's that ran and fixed base operation at Inyokern Airport, started attracting visitors from all over. Now this small airport, with a huge runway can assist all kinds of aviation visitors and host many type of yearly events. So be sure to check out their cool website.
