Thank you Patrick for sharing these Photos. Patrick ran across these original negs a few years ago in an estate. He has been gracious to share them with us and is working with the museum as we can to acquire top quality prints from the negs for the museum collection. These photos date back to about 1914 or so when Walters Store first opened.

Hello Hesperia History Fans.
I am tring to obtain 21 photos from the 1910-20 era of Hesperia. One is the earliest photo I have seen of Walters Store abot 1914-15. These are from the original Negs and would be a great addition to the Museum Collection. Hope I can come to a deal on them.

This photo was taken last year during a pretty good rain. There were two times in the last 150 years that make our Hesperia as well as Southern California storm a spring shower. What years were they and how much rain hit in the 4 days?

My Dad had a store on Main Street in Hesperia called Wilson's sporting goods, feed and tackle in the late 60's to 70's. I would love to find photos of it or any information on it. I don't know the address but it is now a thrift store.
I am looking for a map of Hesperia from 1997. Any ideas were i could find it? Thanks
