  Fact
   

The Mojave Phone Booth


In the middle of the Mojave Desert in California, there was a lone telephone booth, 50 miles from Interstate 15, and apparently in the middle of nowhere. Years ago miners who worked nearby used it, but nowadays nobody seems to remember who or why built it. The world-wide obsession about it began in 1977 when Godfrey Daniels from Arizona read about it in a magazine. He has since made five pilgrimages to the booth and called it numerous times. After him, many more would just visit or call it- (760)733-9969 was its phone number. Unfortunately the booth fell victim to its own popularity- on 23 May 2000 the San Jose Mercury News reported that it had been removed by Pacific Bell and the National Park Service.
