Seniors Enjoy Victorville

800px-Old_Town_Victorville-Veteran's_Memorial-Seventh_St-Forrest_AveSenior travelers will find Victorville in the Victor Valley of southwestern San Bernardino County, California. Its estimated population as of July 1, 2013 was 121,096.

The community of Victorville was incorporated on September 21, 1962, and prior to incorporation the community had a history which goes back over 100 years, when the first settlers of European descent arrived.

In about 1885, the community was known as Victor. It was named after Jacob Nash Victor, a construction superintendent for the California Southern Railroad (Santa Fe Railroad). In 1901, the community’s name was changed by the United States Post Office from “Victor” to “Victorville” due to the confusion associated with the community of Victor, Colorado.


I always like those cities that end in “ville” that are everywhere in the US. So where in the world in Victorville? The city is situated approximately 97 miles northeast of Los Angeles and 35 miles northeast of San Bernardino on I-15.
