History & History Related Items

Victorville history:

Before the coming of the Railroad through Cajon Pass, the Victorville area was used as a rest stop for migrating groups, such as the Mormons, the Spanish missionaries, and explorers. It was home to local Native American Tribes. Once the Santa Fe Railroad came through, things changed. The construction was overseen by Jacob Nash Victor and it was this man for whom the town was named. On January 18, 1886, the Plan of the Town of Victor was prepared which created the grid pattern of the original town. In 1901, the U.S. Post Office changed the name of the town "Victor" to "Victorville", due to a conflict with another town already named "Victor", in Colorado. Among the industries in this early time were: agriculture, cement manufacturing, and lumbering.

In 1941, George Air Force Base was created which brought further growth to the area. Though new business was generated because of the new base, the most significant aid to the growth of the area was the discovery of underground water by Newton T. Bass. A good source of water in this desert area guaranteed its continued survival for the future.

Victorville was incorporated as a city on September 21, 1962. When the city was incorporated there were about 8,110 residents and an area of only 9.7 square miles. Though George Air Force Base was closed in 1992, the area has continued to boom with lower housing cost bringing many from the more populated areas of San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
