Lancaster sits in Antelope Valley, at the edge of the Mojave Desert. Its popularity and immigration has periodically risen and fallen over the years. The original inhabitants of the area were the Piute Indians, until the arrival of the Southern Railroad. With the railroad, came the new occupants and settlers. The railroad was the first to name the place the Lancaster Station and had yards and watering facilities at this stop that soon saw workers take up residence here.
Moses Langley Wicks was the first to envision a commercial future for this water stop and bought up large swaths of property from the railroad then packaged it and resold it as part of a newly designed township. The price, at the turn of the 20th century, for an acre of land in Lancaster was $6. Wicks had purchased the land at $2.5 per acre.
In 1898, gold and borax were discovered near Lancaster and that caused the new influx of residents into the city. It was quickly followed by the construction of the Aqueduct stretching from Los Angeles. This created jobs for thousands of workers who were then housed in Lancaster. One of the families that lived here at the time was the Gumm family. The little girl, Frances "Baby" Gumm went on to become Judy Garland.
