Lucerne Valley history:

The area was homesteaded in the early 1880s by a small group of men, the first of whom was Peter Davidson, known as Uncle Pete. In 1886, W.W. Brown and his family came to live, selling out around 1896 to Al Swarthout. When he moved to another area in 1897, James Goulding and his family took over what what then known as the Box S Ranch. The Gouldings grew alfalfa which was also known as lucerne. Thus, the area was named for the lucerne crop.
