Osiris Ghost Town

The Old Creamery


Osiris, located approximately 13 miles north of Widtsoe, was founded by E. F. Holt, the financier-developer of Imperial Valley, California, in the late 1920s. Holt built a rock-walled creamery at Osiris, in Black Canyon, which was later converted into a grain processing plant. Holt also built a large summer house overlooking the creamery. The buildings remaining in Osiris are privately owned and should only be view from the dirt road which runs past the old creamery.

The road is paved so you can have access to the Ghost Town in the winter. There is a lot of pretty scenery along the way and makes for a perfect day trip.
