Twentynine Palms is a desert and mountain area. It is home of Joshua Tree National Park and Park Headquarters, and Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center Twentynine Palms, the world's largest Marine Base. It is located approximately half way between Los Angeles, CA and Las Vegas, NV (using the 10 and 15).

History

Twentynine Palms was named for the palm trees located in the Oasis of Mara, at the Joshua Tree National Park headquarters. When the area was settled by gold miners in the late nineteenth century, there were 29 palm trees growing in the oasis, most of which are still standing today.

Located at an elevation of 1950 feet (595 m) in the Mojave desert of Southern California, Twentynine Palms is recognized for its extreme temperatures. On July 17, 2005 the high temperature hit 119 degrees Fahrenheit (48.3C), which is a new record. The previous record was 118 degrees Fahrenheit (47.8C), set on July 11, 1961. The record low temperature is 9 degrees Fahrenheit (-12.2C), set on December 23, 1990.

Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant had a hit single called "29 Palms", from his solo album Fate of Nations in 1993 .

The Willie Boy Story

Carlota, the daughter of William Mike, a Twentynine Palms Chemehuevi who had moved his family to the Gilman Ranch in the Coachella Valley near Banning, figured in a tragedy that rocked Southern California in 1909, and has since been the subject of books and a movie. A cousin named Willie Boy, who had fallen in love with her, persuaded her to elope with him, their marriage having been forbidden because they were cousins. Her father tracked them and brought them back. Accounts vary with respect to what followed, but agree that Willie Boy shot and killed William Mike, perhaps by accident, escaped with Carlota into the desert, was tracked by a posse, and left Carlota hidden in a wash with his coat and waterskin. She died, either shot by the posse by mistake, or from exposure. According to Chemehuevi tradition, Willie Boy escaped, but has not been seen again[1]

Trivia

The town is referred to in two different Sublime songs (April 29th, 1992 and Thanks Dub). The band was supposed to play a concert in Twentynine Palms. It was cancelled at the last minute, due to concerns by the City Council that the band would attract a bad element to the area.[citation needed]

The town of Twentynine Palms is also referred to repeatedly in the song 'Broken Parakeet Blues' written by Ike Riley and appearing on the album titled "We Belong to the Staggering Evening," by the Ike Reilly Assassination (2007).

The city is the smallest in America with a Polynesian non profit organization (Samoan American Association).[citation needed]

There is a Samoan language branch (similar to a Ward) in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints designated the Buena Vista branch.
