Named by an early settler around the turn of the century for its abundance of apple fields, Apple Valley relied on apple growing as its principal industry up until the time of World War I. In subsequent years, a number of factors (including fungus, frosts, and rising cost of electricity to operate the water pumps) combined to kill off many orchards and severely impact the once-thriving industry. By mid-century, enterprising land developers discovered the area and a bedroom community took root. Modern homes, golf courses, and other recreational facilities sprung up; and within a ten-year period, three elementary schools and a junior high school were built and expanded. The town soon became a retreat for movie stars and the site of several movie productions. Among its more noted residents were Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who claim Apple Valley as their final resting place. The town was incorporated in 1988.
