Sink Town Site
This abandoned building rises out of the flat lands at Sink, the most northerly homestead era town in the basin. Of traditional board-and-batten construction, it appears to have persisted over the years thanks to unknown caretakers—it sported a brand new cedar shingle roof when I came across it. Its unusual name comes from the nearby Peters’ Sink area, where a surface creek present at that time disappeared into the desert floor. Its post office opened in 1911 and closed in 1920.
