Aaron G. Lane arrived in Victorville in 1858 and established a waystation known as "Lane's Crossing." It provided shelter and supplies to people who traveled across the desert from San Bernardino to the east for many years. Lane's Crossing was located on the Mojave River, on Turner Road today, two miles north of where Interstate 15 crosses it. Lane, a Mexican-American War veteran who had suffered from malaria during that war, was now a Turner Road resident. He originally moved west to California to join the California gold rush. But he realized that selling supplies to miners would make him a better living.
Lane settled in Ione near Sutter's mill in northern California during those years. He migrated to San Bernardino, however, in 1857. In 1858, he settled on the Mojave River where he established his first station. Later, he sold his land to John Fry Miller from Texas. He changed Lane's Crossing's name to Pioneer Station. Miller, a rancher, became involved in Mojave Valley politics and set up the first polling station in the area at home. Ten voters voted at Lane's home that first year instead of making the long journey to San Bernardino.
