Victorville, CA

7th & Palmdale Road

7th and Palmdale, Victorville, Route 66
Looking north toward the Mojave River on 7th St. from the eastern end of Palmdale Rd.

Long before Route 66 this was a wagon road leading to and from the summit of the Cajon Pass. In the early days Victorville was known informally as the Little Meadows and later on, Huntington's Crossing. The intersection was bypassed all together when the National Old Trails Road followed along the railroad in the early 20th Century and then as roadbuilding tools developed and traffic warranted, the new Route 66 was paved over the wagon road in 1926. At this intersection there was a fork to Palmdale and the western Mojave, now State Highway 18 and Route 66.
