Darwin, CA, somewhere in the middle of nowhereDarwin wasn't always the tiny remote Mojave Desert ghost town that it is today. In the 1870s, its population of 5,000 rivaled that of then Los Angeles; its mines produced the second largest amount of silver in the state; and 122 of 124 residents in its cemetery died by knife or bullet, making it arguably the most violent town in the old West. Today, its home to the World's Hottest Phone Booth and the Water Tank House.
