Yucca Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 13 photos

Located along Route 66

Like so many small communities along Route 66, Yucca started in 1880 as a water stop for the old steam trains on the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad (affiliated with the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway). During WWII much of land was purchased by the Army and became the Yucca Army Airfield where pilots could train. Then in 1954 the old airfield was purchase by Ford who later sold again to Chrysler in 2007.

From 1950's to the 70's Yucca enjoyed its hey day. Sadly in the 70's when Interstate 40 bypassed the old route and so many businesses left. Now a few survive for those who made Yucca there home.
