A Historical Barber Shop

Apple Valley Inn included a Barber shop in the original plaza and has been around since the 1950’s. Originally named Vic’s Barbershop, it was open for business between 1954 to 2006, where it still stands today. Preserving the history, Apple Valley Inn Barbershop has opened to continue the legacy.

Apple Valley Inn was built in the 1940’s where well-known celebrities vacationed and used as a halfway point between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Lucille Ball and husband Desi Arnaz, Marylin Monroe, Bob Hope, and John Wayne, and Richard Nixon to name a few.

The cross-street Dale Evans Parkway was named after the famous wife of actor Roy Rogers who eventually laid to rest in the city of Apple Valley.

Located right under the Hilltop house built by Newt Bass and Bud Westlund, now a landmark. Also, where locals hike a small trail to the top for a scenic view of the city.
