Morongo Basin Historical Society Field Trip
Tour the Historic "Town" of Goffs March 14 with MB Historical Society
March 14 all day field trip to historic Goffs. Sign up beginning March 3
Founded in 1893, the town of Goffs is located on 75 acres in the Mojave Desert 2 hours from Twentynine Palms . It has a rich mining, ranching, railroading, homesteading and cultural history.
The visit begins at the “town” that was once a famous stop on Old Route 66 before the state rerouted the “Mother Road”, bypassing Goffs. Hugh and Carol Brown of the Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association (MDHCA) will give a brief introduction, before we take a self-guided tour of the 1914 Goffs Schoolhouse Museum.
Next we will go over to view the 6000 volume Mojave Desert Archives, which is stored in a replica of the Goff’s Depot. Join us for a day steeped in history.
Members $10 and non-members $15. Contact Claudia email@example.com 760-366-7896 to sign up.Visit Event Website for More Info
