Scotty's Castle

Saves: 6
Check-ins: 0
Named after prospector and Wild West Show performer Walter E. Scott, this Spanish Revival villa is a welcome oasis within the unlikely expanse of Death Valley. Also quite the conman, Scott built his estate at the tune of $1.5 million which was a hefty amount in 1922. The way he received the money is part of the story; he conned Chicago millionaire Albert Mussey Johnson into investing in a non-existent goldmine. Although the estate might not be open for touring, you can see it quite clearly from Scotty's Castle Rd. which can be reached by taking Route 95.
