About Baker

The community founded in 1908 and was named after R.C. Baker, Tonopah and Tidewater Railroad president. Baker was developed later to provide gasoline and services in the remote desert area along the highway between Las Vegas and Barstow. One of the first to move to and develop Baker was 'Dad' Fairbanks of Death Valley fame and founder of Shoshone, CA.
