History

With the onset of World War II the Department of the Navy located its new warfare center in Inyokern. Today Inyokern serves as a sparsely populated bedroom community for those workers on the military base and in the town of Ridgecrest desiring a more rural lifestyle or those who cannot afford housing in Ridgecrest. It was a railroad town established along the Southern Pacific railroad Lone Pine Branch (now removed). The population of the town peaked in approximately 1988 following a period of expansion on the nearby Naval base, but has dwindled since that time, and many properties were abandoned during the military downsizing of the 1990s. The military base was subsequently moved to the east and the city of Ridgecrest was born as a commercial support center for that base.
