Things to do in Lancaster

    Antelope Valley Indian Museum Antelope Valley Indian Museum Lancaster, California
    The Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park sits on the north side of Los Angeles County and contains many Great Basin Native American cultures; originally built in 1928 by homesteader/artist H. Arden Edwards. The museum houses the collections of H. Arden Edwards and the next owner and anthropology student Grace Oliver. These marvelous displays interpret and represent the American Indian tribes of the southwest, both contemporary and aboriginal; with numerous relics either one-of-a-kind or rare artifacts. It is a chalet style building, constructed over a rock formation of Piute Butte right in the Mojave Desert, and is considered a unique folk-art building that has since been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Joshua Cottage contains a "touch-table", where all visitors can learn more about food grinding and processing as well as other tribal techniques that were and are used by Native American tribes. Another impressive skill to learn is how to start a fire with bow drills or sticks. There is a wonderful nature trail that begins next to the museum and is self-guided, as well as an outdoor ceremonial circle and picnic area. Often, other "guest" Native American tribes will come here to perform their traditional dances or other venues, with the yearly ground blessing ceremony held every fall. You'll see many Native American artists showing how they work and the results which are usually sold; with great Native American foods available and very special activities for the children. The museum contains over 7500 Native American artifacts and works of art that span many years and are very exciting to learn about. Howard Edwards was a self-taught artist and fell in love with the beautiful scenery that spread out before him around the buttes when he came to visit the valley. In 1928, he, his wife and teenage son came here to homestead the 160 acres on Piute Butte and constructed the very special house that has become the museum. He set aside a space for his collection of prehistoric and historic American Indian relics in such a way as to educate and entertain any visitors. By the 1940s, Grace Wilcox Oliver had come here and bought the property, having taken many anthropology courses, and renovated the main structure and enlarged the buildings; also adding her own discoveries and findings. Since neither owner was instructed or learned in archaeology and record keeping, the artifacts are somewhat eclectic, and obviously, the preference or interests of the finder. The collections are currently being researched to add more details to the individual artifacts, so that visitors will have the authentic and latest available information about any tribes or relics that has been discovered or discussed. The present exhibits housed here were in fact, arranged in the early 1990s and show how these interesting tribes would adapt to the environment around them, since this valley had been a major crossroads of the Great Basin, California coasts, and Pueblo cultures of Arizona and New Mexico. You will view many rock art pictographs in the Great Basin, southwest and Antelope Valley, as well as outstanding relics from around those same areas. There are many excellent dioramas and other depictions of the Native Americans that came here to visit or live and is one of the best museums in the southwest that actually does this.

    Lancaster Museum Art GalleryLancaster Museum/Art Gallery Lancaster, California
    The City of Lancaster Museum/Art Gallery opened in 1986, although their historical significance goes back to the beginning of the city, in Lancaster, California. During 1876, a railway siding was built at Lancaster after the Southern Pacific Railroad came through here, and a town was laid out in the start of 1884. The new town began with a general store, blacksmith shop and other businesses, along with the necessary residences needed to house these new entrepreneurs and other pioneers. The first school would be constructed on what is now the southeast corner of the museum's parking lot and is now used as a residence. The Western Hotel, that sits about half a block from the museum, opened in 1888/9, and the property that the museum now sits on was used for corrals at that time, to house the animals that the hotel's guests owned; and then later on, the crews that worked on the Los Angeles Aqueduct in 1908 to 1912. Many businesses would be started here on the museum's property, during the ensuing years, but one of the most significant would be the old Valley Theater that was constructed by the Carter family in 1926. It could seat 500 people, although Carter would eventually rent it out to Frank Gumm, the father of actress Judy Garland (Frances Gumm); and it was here that young Frances/Judy and her sisters would jump onto the stage and entertain the local audiences, and begin her tragic climb to fame and distress.  Sometime later, a Shopping Bag market would locate here and then the building was used as a commercial enterprise; and then the structure would become vacant for some years. The empty building would cause some challenges for the city, since the planners thought that a city hall could be placed there, but then they considered rejuvenating it and making it the district headquarters of the Antelope Valley Union High School District and a museum/art gallery. There are between 7 and 9 changing exhibitions held here each year, with each one lasting four to twelve weeks, featuring local, national and international historical and art displays from private collectors, other museums and the museum/art gallery's own permanent collections. The shows include lectures and free public receptions; and the museum showcases an 800 square foot permanent exhibit of prehistoric and dinosaur mammal fossils. Some of the marvelous displays include race cars, Mayan artifacts, robotic dinosaurs, ancient Egyptian mummies, Native American relics, antique automobiles, civil war memorabilia, NASA space suits and works of art by Chagall, Picasso, da Vinci, Renoir, Bischoff, Rembrandt, Daumier, Goya and numerous other artists. In the permanent collections, there are numerous historical displays, with more than 2500 relics included in the collections and more coming in all the time as local citizens donate their artifacts to keep them preserved for future generations to appreciate. 

     Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve
    Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve Lancaster, California
    The Antelope Valley California Poppy State Reserve is a state-protected reserve that is located in the rural westside of Antelope Valley in northern Los Angeles County, some 15 miles west of Lancaster, California and sitting some 2600 to 3000 feet above sea level. It is located in the Mojave desert climate zone and taken care of by the state parks. The reserve is named and protected based on the state's flower, the California poppy, and one of the most consistent poppy bearing lands; along with other beautiful wildflowers like coreopsis, lupine, cream cups, goldfields and owl's clover. This outstanding blooming season is in late winter and early spring, or during the months of mid-February to mid-May, although they are dependent on the amount of rains that fall during the winter to early spring season. Inside the reserve you will find about seven miles of trails that also contains a paved road for wheelchair access, that meander through the fields. Wanting to keep the fields in their natural state, it is not watered or any types of chemicals used to stimulate growth, and it does exclude cattle and sheep from using it as grazing lands. It had been used for sheep grazing prior to the 1970s in the buttes of western Antelope Valley, with pronghorn using it for grazing before that; or until the railroads arrived in 1876. Pets are prohibited from using the preserve, although service pets are allowed; and flower picking is prohibited by the state. Starting in 1994, control fires have been started to regulate the area's dead brush, litter and exotic species in the preserve area. It is a beautiful area to visit and just smell the flowers, with plenty of opportunities to take pictures of the magnificent mountains in the background and the colorful wildflowers blooming in the open spaces for the enjoyment of all that come here.

    Tehachapi Mountain Range
    Tehachapi Mountain Range Lancaster, CaliforniaThe Tehachapi Mountains are one of the short transverse ranges that connects the Coast Ranges with the Sierra Nevada mountains and forms a barrier between San Joaquin Valley and the Mojave Desert and Great Basin by Lancaster, California. The range is usually crossed at the Tejon Pass on its southwestern side, and the unusual incline that faces those travelers along Interstate 5 on the northern slopes of the range as it heads down into the San Joaquin Valley floor has been locally referred to as the Grapevine since there are still grapevines on the earlier route that existed on the slopes. The Tehachapis, is not a large or long mountain range, however, it is quite significant since many people in the state consider it to be the natural boundary that separates the northern parts of California from its southern end. You can discover at least 68 varieties of birds here, all of them eating the acorns of the California black oak for part of their diet, and other flora seen here include the mountain mahogany and buckbrush. As many expect to see in the mountains here in this state, there are large fauna that include the raccoon, mule deer, black bear, fox, bobcat, mountain lion, coyote and feral pig. The mountain range is a unique crossroads in the climate zones, with the Mojave Desert to the east and the southeast that allows only a few inches of rain each year, and the south contains the Transverse Ranges that are located in the Los Padres National Forest and the Angeles National Forest. It is a beautiful land with excellent hiking and mountain biking opportunities as well as wonderful area to be photographed.

    Saddleback Butte State ParkSaddleback Butte State Park Lancaster, California
    Saddleback Butte State Park is located in southern California's Antelope Valley, around Lake Los Angeles and covers about 2,955 acres of beauty and the main feature of the park, Saddleback Butte. The butte rises some 3,651 feet into the sky and was started in 1960 to protect the marvelous area's Joshua tree population. The Joshua tree is also called the Yucca palm, Tree yucca or palm tree yucca and is indigenous to the Mojave Desert that runs through California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada. It seems to thrive in the open grasslands of the Queen Valley and Lost Horse Valley in Joshua Tree National Park. The tree received its name from a group of Mormon settlers that crossed the Mojave Desert in the mid-19th century, since it reminded them of a Biblical story that has Joshua raises his hands to the heavens in prayer. Saddleback Butte is set at 3,651 feet above sea level and is a granite mountaintop that rises above the alluvial bottom land of the Antelope Valley some 15 miles east of Lancaster, California, sitting at the western edge of the Mojave Desert. The best time to visit here is in the spring, February through May, when the wildflowers are in full bloom and show a magnificent display of color and beauty. The autumn period is also gorgeous, but the weather starts changing rather fast and could vary greatly. The Little Butte Trail is 2.5 miles to the peak and can be found at the base or you can take the 2 mile hike from the Saddleback Butte Peak Trail that starts in the trailhead parking lot. The trails start out on fairly easy slopes with some loose sand around the creosote bushes and Joshua trees that are found here up to the base of the butte where they come together. Then it does get somewhat challenging as you climb up the sand and scrabble, but when you get to the top, you'll find that it was all worthwhile as you have a spectacular panoramic view of the valley and desert. At the visitor center, you can take a short self-guided tour of the Dic Dowen Nature Trail that has much information about the history of the park and surrounding area. The park includes 27 picnic sites with tables and bbq grills, with ramadas for protection from the sun and heat. You will also find pit toilets and water located around the picnic area.

    Edwards Air Force Base
    Edwards AFB Lancaster, CaliforniaThe Edwards Air Force Base in Edwards, California has been the home of the brave for many decades now and was named for one such man, test pilot Glen Edwards, who, along with five other crew members died on June 5, 1948 northwest of the base while testing the YB-49 Flying Wing. It has been designated as the Air Force Test Flight Center and is home to the 412th Test Wing, NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center and the United States Air Force Test Pilot School. Just about all of the military aircraft that has been produced was tested in some way since the 1950s at the base, with numerous breakthroughs taking place because of these important and life saving tests. The base has been set next to Rogers Dry Lake, a desert salt pan, with hard dry lake surface being a perfect extension to the ends of the base's runways, and allows for extra landing space. Add the almost perfect weather to that and you have the reason why the base was constructed here and why it is still located here. The lake itself has been made a National Historic Landmark and some of the most well known events that have happened here include; the first landings of the Space shuttle, the 1986 around-the-world flight of the Rutan Voyager, test flights of the North American X-15 and Chuck Yeager's famous flight when he broke the sound barrier in the Bell X-1. The base has grown into one of the nation's biggest purchasers of renewable energy, getting 60% of its power from renewable sources, and has become a lead partner in the United States Environmental Protection Agency's Green Power Partnership. Edwards has been around since 1933, when a cadre came here to lay out a bombing range for bomb crews and set up tents. Previous names for the base include; Muroc Lake Bombing and gunnery range, September 1933; Army Air Base, Muroc Lake, 1942; Muroc Army Airfield in 1943, and the Muroc Air Force Base in 1948.

    Arthur B. Ripley Desert Woodland State Park
    Arthur B. Ripley Desert Woodland State Park Lancaster, California
    The Arthur B. Ripley Desert Woodland State Park is located on the westside of Antelope Valley in northern LA county, some 20 miles west of Lancaster, California and 5 miles from the Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve. Arthur donated the land to the state so that it could protect and preserve its stand of native Joshua trees and junipers that had grown in great abundance all through the valley at one time. Presently, the only remaining parts of these stands are in the valley, with the majority of the other areas being replaced with developments, farms and other uses that stripped the land and forest that had been located there for thousands of years. The Joshua Tree has vital to the cultural history of the valley, giving Native Americans food and fiber for their use. It was added to the list of state parks in 1988, and because of the continuing encroachment of houses and farms, the Joshua tree needed some protection. These trees are actually part of the lily family, and in the early spring months, creamy white blossoms appear on the ends of the Joshua, lasting for several months and continuing to grow larger as the months pass by. Often, as you hike along the trails in the park you will see a beautiful Joshua tree in full blossom surrounded by wildflowers that make a magnificent and majestic sight that should be painted, but since we all aren't artists, we do have cameras to take pictures so that the image lasts much longer.
