Apple Valley is located at the Southern Edge of the Mojave Desert. For centuries, Apple Valley was populated by Shoshone, Paiute, Vanyume, Chemehuevi and the Serrano Indians;who were attracted to the water and vegetation around the Mojave River. The Mojave people came later and were the tribal group encountered in 1542 by a detachment of Coronado’s men, the first Spaniards to come to the Mojave Desert. Throughout the 19th century, Apple Valley became a thoroughfare to people traveling through Southern California for various reasons.Apple Valley gets 6 inches of rain per year and snow fall is about 7.
