LANCASTER AND PALMDALE, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
Lancaster and Palmdale are high desert communities located in California’s Antelope Valley at the edge of the Mojave desert. The cities are located in northern Los Angeles County. Most recent census data shows 363,494 people living in the Palmdale Lancaster metropolitan area. Edwards Air Force Base, the site of many space shuttle landings, is northeast of the twin cities. The 1,700 acre California Poppy Reserve is devoted to protecting native wildflowers is also in the Antelope Valley.
Antelope Valley was originally home to the Indigenous Paiute Indians and was part of a trade route that linked the native tribes of Arizona and New Mexico to the California tribes.
“Palmenthal”, the first European settlement within the limits of Palmdale, was established as a village on April 20, 1886. It was abandoned after years of drought, and relocated closer to the established train and stagecoach lines. It was renamed Palmdale. Lancaster was an unincorporated community until 1977, when it was incorporated as a city.
The twin cities of Palmdale and Lancaster were originally ranch lands. The completion of the California Aqueduct system in 1913, brought water from the Owens River in the eastern Sierra Valley into Los Angeles County. The aqueduct transformed the land into an agricultural area, that produced apples, pears and alfalfa.
The construction of Muroc Air Force Base at Rogers Dry Lake transformed the Lancaster and Palmdale area, and the aircraft and electronic industries became a major driver of the local economy. Many of the United States’ notable aeronautical achievements have taken place in the Antelope Valley. In October 1947, Chuck Yeager flew a X-1 over Rogers Dry Lake and became the first person to “break” the sound barrier. In 1949, Muroc was renamed Edwards Air Force Base. Edwards also hosted landings of the Space Shuttle.
The post war era saw unprecedented population growth. Lancaster grew from 3,600 to almost 30,000.
In 1990 Lancaster’s Aerospace Walk of Honor was established to honor the test pilots of Edwards Air Force Base who have made significant contributions to the industry.
