Additional Details:
This desert town was once the outfitting point for Death Valley expeditions. Barstow was the center of gold and silver mining in the 1890s when the present ghost town of Calico was in its heyday. The town, located where highways 66, 91, and 466 meet, enjoys a brisk tourist trade. Here is located the Santa Fe Diesel shops. The surrounding desert offers in limited or unlimited quantities a large majority of all metallic and non-metallic elements and minerals.
