U.S. 95 to Fenner
As you enter town, on the right, is the Goffs Cafe and Market, recently re-opened for business. Across the tracks at the corner of Goffs and Lanfair roads is the Goffs Schoolhouse. Built in 1914 by San Bernardino County, the schoolhouse has been restored and is currently the headquarters for the Mojave Desert Heritage and Cultural Association. The propery contains a massive collection of both historical texts and artifacts.
You need to make an appointment to tour the Goffs Schoolhouse, something you wont want to miss.
As you continue along the tour you might notice that the names of the town start to form a pattern. So far it's been Goffs and Fenner. Next you'll go to Essex, then Danby and Cadiz. It's easier to see if you're travel west to east. Starting at Amboy the railroad had watering holes every 5 miles or so, these were named in alphabetica order; Amboy, Bristol, Cadiz, Danby, Essex, Fenner, Goffs, Homer, Ibex, Java, and Klienfelter. Since the original National Trails Road which later became Route 66 ran along the rails many of the water stops evolved into the towns you are traveling through.
