Even before the west coast exploded with individuals rushing across the country in search of their gold filled fortune, the Beaver Dam served as a welcome respite for the weary travelers navigating through the barren desert.
Named as the “halfway point” between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, the lush area became more than just a watering hole when the Beaver Lodge was constructed in 1929.
It did not take long for Los Angeles residents to discover the fine accommodations offered by the Lodge. As a result of their hectic Hollywood life style, many famous actors such as Errol Flynn, Jack Berry and Wallace Berry looked to the Lodge as a welcome escape from their city lives.
Even during the great depression, the allure of the Beaver Lodge failed to subsist. Lining the lodge with penny slot machines, it was able to keep many locals employed throughout the depression from the machine’s proceeds, a sign of the Lodge’s resiliency even during the toughest of times.
Due to its growing popularity, the lodge continued to look for ways to attract more visitors to its lush green landscape. As a result, the Beaver Lodge went through a series of renovations that upgraded its lodge and the surrounding grounds. Despite these changes, the Lodge continued its commitment to honoring its past by ensuring that the look of the lodge remained the same as it did when it opened its doors in 1929.
