California Historical Landmarks in Kern County
California Historical Landmark 476
Pappas Road Between Valley Road and Munsey Road
This spring was on an old Indian horse thief trail and later (1834) Joe Walker Trail. The famished Manly-Jayhawk Death Valley parties (1849-50) were revived here after coming from Indian Wells through Last Chance Canyon. This was also a station on the Nadeau Borax Freight Road.
