Daggett Historical Society
The Daggett Historical Society is dedicated to preserving the history of the town of Daggett and the surrounding area, and in promoting Daggett's importance in the regional history of the Southwest. As the Southwestern terminus of the Southern Pacific Railroad, Daggett was instrumental in developing our Western history and culture.
Built in 1883, The Stone Hotel has hosted such people as John Muir, Walter Scott aka "Death Valley Scotty," Francis Marion "Borax" Smith, and California Lt. Gov. John Daggett. The San Bernardino County Museum has transferred ownership of the Stone Hotel to the Daggett Historical Society. The society will repurpose the hotel for use as the new Daggett Museum.
