Abandoned stone building near Manzanar, CA

Manzanar Ghost Town, This stone building may be part of the Shepherd Homestead Ranch from the 1860's. Farms supplied food mining operations in Owens Valley. The area produced over $13,000,000 in Silver, lead, and zink. The area mines eventually shut down thereby reduced the need for farming. 1920's Los Angels purchased much of the land and water rights and then built a 230 mile long aqueduct and drying up the area. In 1942 Executive Order 9066 interned Japanese living on the west coast creating a temporary community of 110,000 creating the largest town between Reno and Los Angeles.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
