Get to know Victorville, CA
Victorville is a San Bernardino County city in the Victor Valley. In 1858 Aaron G. Lane came to the area and founded a way station, “Lane’s Crossing.” He had come to the area for the Gold Rush, but realized he could make more selling miners supplies. Other settlers slowly arrived, including Mormon pioneers. In 1885 a railroad facility for the California Southern Railroad was established. The telegraph station was named “Victor” for the railroad’s General Manager, Jacob Nash Victor. The name was changed to Victorville in 1901 to avoid confusion with Victor, Colorado. The City of Victorville was incorporated in 1962. The city’s main employers are Southern California Logistics Airport and Victor Valley College. Popular attractions include Spring Valley Lake and the Rock Faces.
