    Favorite thing: Brownie was a stray that wondered into the station bruised and bleeding from being hit by a car. He was given some well needed love by the telegraph operator and soon found himself a home at the station. He greeted all those who passed through the station. He was fed regular by everyone who brought him scraps from home. They even paid for a vet when he fell ill. Sadly Brownie was killed accidentally by a train car. It was such a sad day for all those at the train station. They placed him in a box and buried him under a cottonwood tree in Forrest Park in 1945 and even passed the hat around to pay for a grave marker. I still do not know why the marker had to move from the park to the musuem.

  • Actually, I visited...

    Favorite thing: Actually, I visited Victorville, shopped, but I lived in Hesperia. Victorville is fine. There isn't much to it except this little Italian place which has huge Pizza's called Valentino's. You must see Hesperia Lake though, it's a cute little park and has fishing.

    Fondest memory: I think my fondest memory of Victorville would be the little shops. I love to shop and you can find some pretty good bargains.
