Birth: Sep. 4, 1922
Death: Nov. 8, 1925

Ludlow is a town that has died twice. The community was named for William B. Ludlow, a railroad worker.

Ludlow started out as a water stop for the Atlantic and Pacific Railroad in 1883. Ore was discovered and the town grew up as did other lil towns and settlements in the gold boom. Mining came and went and with it, the town population left too but for the few diehards. As with most small towns, once the interstate was laid out few bothered to stop and that led to the residents exiting a second time. This little town has essentially died twice but there is still a hearbeat there. There are old abandoned buildings and a cemetery. Currently there are about 20 residents. They work the gas station, car repair, cafe, and a few modern conveniences.

Towns in the eastern Mojave have had a high infant/child mortality rate due to the extreme temps. Daytime highs of 110-124 with nighttime lows of 80+ are not unusual.
