News from the… High Desert

The Pioneertown people don’t want to get too excited yet, but the feeling is building. When the town’s water district is actually formed and functioning, the problem that has held back phenomenal growth will be headed toward a final solution. They absolutely want to keep the Western motif of the town, and many want it to stay small, but with plenty of piped water available the growth will mushroom.

Among those who have waited so patiently are Ron Young and his mother Gladys, who have owned and operated the Pioneertown Bowling Alley for 24 years.

“It looks like it’s becoming more and more of a reality every day,” says Ron.

There’s a whole list of dreamers and planners no longer with us, who would have been mighty happy with the water development and Pioneertown’s more than deserved place in the sun.
