These ruins, with their thick cement walls, have all but succumbed to the riggers of Mother Nature whose worked her magic on what was once the Ashford Mill in Death Valley National Park.
Since 1941, the Ashford Mill has sat unoccupied but it was once a thriving community of workers mining for gold ore. It was established in 1914 by the Ashford brothers.
The only reason these ruins are still standing is because of oversupply of cement at the time it was built, so the extra cement was used to make thicker walls.
