Sadly the MOJAVE-PHONE no longer exists, here are some photos of the now long gone phone box. Keep sending me pictures of this unique telephone booth and place. It is not that much of an exaggeration that the MOJAVE PHONE or MOHAVE-PHONE was located at the end of the world. However where the world ends, was a desolate but beautiful place!
Up until the 1980s the MOJAVE-PHONE was basically an unknown telephone that was located in the desert.
During the 1980s some western newspapers mentioned the phone booth by way of articles, so a few adventurers went out to find it. But the phone booth pretty much remained an unvisited site.
When the story of the isolated phone hit the internet in the 1990s, as in, there was a phone booth located out in the middle of nowhere, the phone booth became the place to go to, or the place to find. WHY?
The phone booth in many ways was located at the edge of the world, consequently adventures wanted to visit the end of the world and find the MOJAVE-PHONE and call out. "KILROY WAS HERE".
Those that could not visit the desert would call the telephone that sat in the middle of the desert in hope of speaking to somebody who was there at point X--where the world ended.
Why was the MOJAVE-PHONE so attractive to so many, as in calling in or visiting it. I maintain, that the good energy of those that went to this phone or called in, left a wonderful haunting magic at this place. Later on people wanted to feel or be part of that energy.
In the late 1990s due to the phone being noted in internet articles, it seems the desert telephone became a modern "GRAIL".
Because people from all over the world went "GRAILING" to the Mojave desert in hopes of finding it and phoning from it.

On April 6, 1967, the episode of "CITY ON THE EDGE OF NOWHERE" premiered on Star Trek, the fantastic script was penned by HARLAN ELLISON and butchered by MR. EGO (Gene Rodenberry). However Ellison's writing shines through on this program. Kirk and crew come across a time machine in the middle of nowhere, that looks like a Winchell's doughnut. The portal communicates with Kirk & Spock, it is called "GUARDIAN", it is a compelling machine. The point being is that as far out as this reads, the MOJAVE PHONE BOOTH was like the "GUARDIAN" machine. It was a portal or a machine to the rest of the world that was located in the middle of nowhere.
ABOVE: the "GUARDIAN" machine from STAR TREK… It was a machine that could reach out to other places. That is what the MOJAVE TELEPHONE BOOTH was, its telephone -- MOJAVE-PHONE -- was "THE TELEPHONE ON THE EDGE OF FOREVER.
