BARSTOW, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Barstow is located in San Bernadino County, 90 miles from Los Angeles in Southern California,. Over 24,000 people make their home in Barstow. Located at the edge of the Mojave desert, along the Mojave River, Barstow began as a mining town and from its beginning has served as a regional transportation hub, for wagon trains, the railroad and the automobile. Barstow’s Main Street includes part of the route of the original iconic Route 66. Today, Barstow remains a transportation hub for the region, located at the junction of Interstate 15, Interstate 40 and State Highway 58.
Barstow is a gateway to the 1.6 million acre Mojave National Preserve and is close to the Burlington Northern-Santa Fe Railroad Yards, the Fort Irwin Military Reservation, Marine Corps Logistics Base and NASA’s Goldstone Deep Space Network.
Following the discovery of gold and silver in the Owens Valley, and in the nearby Calico mountains, miners began arriving in the area that is now Barstow. The Southern Pacific built a line from Mojave, California through Barstow that later became part of the Santa Fe Railroad. Barstow was named after William Barstow Strong, former president of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway. The Western America Railroad Museum is a railroad museum located in Barstow, California. The role of the railroads is highlighted in Barstow’s Western America Railroad museum, which collects, preserves and exhibits the history of railroading in the Pacific Southwest
By 1883, it was borax that shaped the region’s economy. Mined as colemanite (calcium borate), borax was used as a preservative, as a medicine, and as a flux in enameling that allowed metals to melt at a lower temperature. It is estimated that over 9 million dollars worth of borax was taken from the Calico Hills. Barstow was a busy rail center and with the advent of Route 66, became a transit hub for the auto as well. Both Routes 66 and 91 passed through Barstow. The Route 66 Mother Road Museum is located in the town, and contains photographs and artifacts of the iconic road. Today, Barstow is at the junction of Interstate 15, Interstate 40 and State Highway 58.
The establishment of the Mojave Anti-Aircraft Range in the 1940’s helped contribute to Barstow’s growth. Now known as the Fort Irwin National Training Center, it is a major training center for the United States military, located 37 miles northeast of Barstow, in the Calico Mountains of San Bernardino County. In 1958 the Goldstone Tracking Station was established in the Mojave, near Barstow. The complex, now called the Gladstone Deep Space Communications Complex, is used to communicate with spacecraft and satellites. Operated by NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the location was selected because the remote desert location was far from from power lines and free of interference from commercial transmitters.
