Barnwell

Junction: Hart Mine Road

Originally the headquarters of the Briggs and Murphy Ranch. Joined with other ranches into the Rock Springs Land and Cattle Company in 1894.

The site of Barnwell was reached by the Nevada Southern Railway in 1893. At that time the site was named Manvel for the current president of the Santa Fe railroad.

The railroad was reorganized as the California Eastern Railway in 1895, and the branch line to Searchlight built in 1906-1907.

The name of this site was changed to Barnwell in 1907, named for a telegraph operator stationed there by the railroad company.

Locations: Jacoby Ranch. Ledge. Maruba P. O..  

OX Ranch

Junction: New York Mountain Road, west along the south side of the New York Mountains, past Caruthers Canyon, to Fourth of July.

The headquarters of the OX Ranch is on Ivanpah Road, at the intersection with New York Mountain Road. This location has also been known as "Ledge," a station on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, and " Maruba," which seems to have been the name of a post office (Thompson, 1920). It was at Ledge that Annie Alexander and Louise Kellogg were directed to the south side of the New York Mountains because the road to Keystone Canyon was washed out. Annie and Louise made their way to Caruthers Canyon, thinking they were in Fourth of July Canyon, and collected many specimens in May, 1940.

Thompson (1921) refers to the ranch here as "Jacoby Ranch."
