With a rich history and heritage, the charming community of Lancaster, California, is a fabulous place to buy a home. No one is quite sure of who named Lancaster, but it is believed it was either a member of the Southern Pacific Railroad named Mr. Purnell or a real estate developer named M.L. Wicks. Despite that uncertainty, it is agreed, the city’s establishment is the direct result of the completion of the Southern Pacific Railroad connecting San Francisco to Los Angeles. It was the railroad that brought considerable growth to Lancaster around 1890, and the community continued to flourish when north of the city gold was discovered in 1898.
Officially incorporated in 1977, Lancaster is a naturally beautiful place surrounded by the western Mojave Desert’s Antelope Valley in northern Los Angeles County. This wonderful charter city sits near the Kern County line, separated on the north from Bakersfield and the San Joaquin Valley by the Tehachapi Mountains, and on the south from the Los Angeles Basin by the San Gabriel Mountains. Lancaster, along with Palmdale, is one of the principal cities of the Antelope Valley region of California’s High Desert. Additionally, it is only seventy miles north of downtown Los Angeles and is the thirty-first-largest city in the state.
