Neuralia

Neuralia was the name given to a station along the Southern Pacific's Jawbone Branch, which was constructed between 1908-1910 to connect the SP owned Nevada & California Railway to Mojave and Los Angeles and to aid in construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct. The Fremont Valley Land and Water Company was incorporated in 1914 with the intent of developing Neuralia, and by November cement foundations were laid for a new hotel. In 1915, the Interstate Telegraph Company ran wires to the town. In 1916, the Santa Ana Sugar Company purchased some 6000 acres to develop as sugar beet fields, but presumably little-to-no actual developments were made. The post office closed that year, and Neuralia quietly faded. It disappeared from maps after 1947.
