Mojave Desert Communities - East Mojave Desert:

Ludlow, California

Ludlow is a small town with a minimal population, located right off the Interstate 40 about 35 miles east of Barstow, California

The town started as a water stop for the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad in 1883. Ore was found in the nearby hills, leading to a boom. By the 1940s, mining operations had closed down and the little town was pretty much abandoned and only served tourist traffic from Route 66. As Interstate 40 was built more residents abandoned Ludlow leaving the community to further deteriorate.

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck the Mojave Desert at Ludlow December 6th, 2008.
