"Harmony Borax" Top 5 Page for this destination Harmony Borax Mines Tip by Yaqui

 
 

When Borax was discovered back in 1881 by William Tell Coleman found near Furnace Creek Ranch (then called Greenland). Harmony plant began to process ore in late 1883 employing at least 40 men who produced three tons of borax daily for five years and went out of operation of production in 1888, when Coleman?s financial empire collapsed. The plant became famous through the use of large mule teams and double wagons "20-mule team" that hauled borax to Mojave. To this day that symbols embodies the hardiness of beast and man!
