Rogers, Edwards, Muroc . . . All one in the same.
In 1882, the Santa Fe Railroad ran a line westward out of Barstow toward Mojave and built a water stop at the edge of an immense dry lakebed, roughly 20 miles southeast of Mojave. The lakebed was then called Rodriguez Dry Lake.
By the early 1900s, "Rodriguez" had been anglicized into "Rodgers"
In 1910, the Corum family settled at the edge of this lakebed and opened a general store and post office.
Their request to have the post office stop named "Corum" was disallowed because there was already a Coram, Calif. So they simply reversed the spelling of their name and named it "Muroc."
In September 1933, the Muroc Bombing and Gunnery Range was established, later becoming the Muroc Army Air field. At the same time Rogers Dry Lake was called Muroc Dry Lake, reverting back to Rogers after WWII.
In December 1949, Muroc was renamed Edwards Air Force Base in honor of Capt. Glen W. Edwards, who was killed a year earlier in the crash of the YB-49 Flying Wing.
If Rosamond Dry lake could be checked out and found to be usable to me it is nice to run there with Edwards permission because it isn't actually on Edwards, on the map it's not even attached.
