2016 marked the Centennial of the National Park Service, but did you know that The Oasis at Death Valley has been hosting guests in Death Valley long before it was designated as a National Park?

The U.S. Borax company opened the Inn at Furnace Creek on February 1, 1927 with 12 guest rooms. Six years later, President Franklin Roosevelt established Death Valley as a National Monument. Finally in 1994, sixty-seven years after the Inn at Death Valley opened its doors; Congress established Death Valley as a National Park.
