© Barstow Harvey House
The Barstow Harvey House (aka Casa Del Desierto or House of the Desert) is more than just a historical building; the former train depot/restaurant/hotel today houses the Western America Railroad Museum, the Route 66 “Mother Road” Museum, the Barstow Chamber of Commerce and the Barstow Visitor’s Bureau. As such, Barstow Harvey House forms the historical heart of Barstow. During the heyday of American rail travel there were several Harvey Houses dotted along the length of the railroad, where passengers could disembark and enjoy a good meal. The Barstow Harvey House was extensively renovated after earthquake damage in 1992.
