Apple Valley is a city in San Bernardino, California. The apple orchard in the early 20th century was replaced by housing development. In the middle of the 20th century, Hwy 18 and Bear Valley Road contain ranches and traditional streets, along with modern and unconventional architectural designs. Urban development began in the mid-2000s, and large-scale retail stores, chain stores and movie theaters were established.
Despite the name, there are no apple fruit trees in the city. Before World War II, it was known for its award-winning apple cultivation. In the mid-1940s, apple crops in the area were devastated by three years of fungal infection and extreme weather. The Postal Service approved the name of the local post office "Apple Valley" in 1949 after most of the local orchard were destroyed and the commercial apple industry in the area was over.
Apple Valley was a rural resort in Hollywood celebrities and moguls from the 1940s to 1960s. The most famous of them were Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who appeared in many foreign movies and TV programs from the 1930s to the 1950s and who chose his retirement home and his last resting place.
The town was incorporated with most of the desert areas in the late 1980s. While the city is the demand of San Bernardino County, Apple Valley refused to be designated as the "Apple Valley City."
Apple Valley, located at the southern end of the Mohabe Desert, is a hot summer day in the first half of the 1990s, a cold winter night in the mid-30s, with little rain.
