ROY ROGERS & DALE EVANS MUSEUM Victorville, California

Expedition Team: Dave Miller

Date: 1991

I was in town to run the Los Angeles Marathon and had two days to explore the city before the race. I drove 100 miles northeast of LA up into higher country to the town of Victorville. As a kid growing up I watched Roy Rogers TV shows and western movies. Roy had a ranch nearby and a museum just off the interstate. The museum displayed everything about his life from comic books, western toys, records, clothing, photos, movie memorabilia even his horse Trigger and his dog Bullet. I spend two hours reading and viewing the exhibits. I just missed meeting Roy in person but purchased several comics and photos which he later autographed and mailed to me in Dayton. Although the museum no longer exists, it was one of my favorite Roadside Attractions.
