Founded in 1910, Shoshone is small, but it is notable as a southern gateway to Death Valley National Park; in addition to being a junction of roads leading from Baker, California and Pahrump, Nevada, it has the last services available before the Furnace Creek area in the park. The commercial district of the town, including a Post Office, gas station, restaurant, bar and coffee house, is just north of the southern intersection of California State Routes 127 and 178.
Shoshone Village has long been a favorite of movie, film, and video professionals as a convenient base of operations while on location in our quaint village setting. Surrounded by breathtaking desert film locations, Shoshone Village has much to offer in the way of convenience and scenic beauty.
