Rabbit Springs

Photo of Rabbit Springs in Lucerne Valley
The setting of Rabbit Springs is a worn scarp south of the Lucerne playa where groundwater is forced up into a brushy pond.

A group of springs 1.25 miles northwest of the center of Lucerne Valley along a low faultline. The site had been used as a campsite by local Indians since prehistoric times, but all signs of that habitation are now gone. In 1873 L. D. Wilson, John E. McFee, W. S. Manning, W. P. Morrison, and a man named Holmes homesteaded near here. [1]

In the late 1800s and early 1900s there was a stage stop established near here. This stage would run from Victor (Victorville) eastward to Rabbit Springs and past Cushenbury and up to the Rose Mine and usually on over to Holcomb Valley and return. [2]
