I am seeking any information or photographs of the weather station that was in Greenland Ranch from 1911 to about 1961. The station consisted of a white, louvered enclosure on legs about 5 feet high, and a rain bucket about 8 inches in diameter, both surrounded by a wooden or barb wire fence. The station was located somewhere just south of the present day post office in Furnace Creek.

If you know anything about its specific location, or have photographs of the station, I'd like to hear from you!
