Daggett Stone Hotel

The Daggett Stone Hotel, presently under restoration and not open to the public, was the place to stay for railroad men, miners, and other travelers in the central Mojave Desert. Constructed in the 1880s, the building has undergone several catastrophes, including a fire that destroyed its upper story before the turn of the century. Amongst regular guests at the hotel was "Death Valley Scotty," said to have occupied the front room on the photograph's right because it had a separate entrance.

There used to be a big sign next to the Daggett Stone Motel - it was gone last time we went by (a few weeks ago). Too bad, it had alot of historical info. Maybe the Clampers can put a plaque there. I am writing a series on Rt. 66 see: and put in "route 66."
