This building was originally built by the Pacific Coast Borax Company in 1924. The original name of the facility was Corkill Hall, and was the social center for Death Valley Junction between 1924 to 1948.

Between the years 1948 to 1967, Corkill Hall was abandoned as Death Valley Junction began to decline.

In 1967 Marta Becket discovered the abandoned building, and transformed it into the Amargosa Opera House which officially opened February 10, 1968.
