EICHBAUM TOLL ROAD


In 1926, H. W. Eichbaum obtained a franchise for a toll road from Darwin Falls to Stovepipe Wells, the first maintained road into Death Valley from the west. It changed the area’s economic base from mining to tourism and brought about the creation of Death Valley National Monument seven years later.
