Victorville has grown over the years from a sleepy little village in the late 1890's to a small town in the 50's. Then in the late 70's the rest of the nation discovered Victorville. It use to be that we toped the Cajon Pass on old 395 there was nothing from the Summit Inn all the way to the 118 off ramp leading into downtown Victorville. Today, as you pass that same Summit Inn you notice that home and businesses line both sides of the 15 freeway as it heads north. Back in the 50's Hesperia was just a little area sitting off of the 395. Today, before you even get into the outskirts, old 395 splits off from the 15 and heads due north for Northern California and the Sierras. And the same is true on this route. Homes and small businesses line both sides of the highway all the way to the old George Airforce Base Area. To the North of Victorville you will find the old homestead ruins, where people still homestead to this day. Iron Woman Mt Road and the railroad still traverse this route out to Iron Mt. It is hot hilly desolate, and filled with all sorts of people. X gang members, cowboys, woman and it seems anyone who is hiding from the modern world, all live in this northern part of Victorville. gdh
