Blackwells Corner is an unincorporated community in Kern County, California.[1] It is located 50 miles (80 km) west-northwest of Bakersfield,[2] at an elevation of 650 feet (198 m).[1] Blackwells Corner is at the intersection of California State Route 46 and California State Route 33, and was the last place James Dean was seen alive prior to his death in a car wreck.
