Adelanto was founded in 1915 by E. H. Richardson. During this time, fruit orchards thrived and were known throughout the state until being replaced by poultry ranches after the Great Depression. In 1941, the Victorville Army Airfield was established within the sphere of Adelanto’s influence and in 1950 it was named George Air Force Base (it now serves as Southern California Logistics Airport). Adelanto continued as a Community Service District until 1970 when it incorporated.
The name Adelanto means progress or advance in Spanish, and was given to the first post office in 1917. Currently, Adelanto has a population of approximately 32,000. Located at the northern tip of the Victor Valley it enjoys the same desirable climate as the surrounding area. Sunny skies, clear air, breath-taking sunsets, diverse work opportunities and affordable housing are some of the many reasons why people like to call Adelanto home.
