Rosamond is a small residential community separated from Los Angeles by large national forests and a mountain range, helping give residents in homes for rent in this suburb a more rural way of life. There's still lots of activities in the area, however. There are several racetracks and speedways in Rosamond, and for even more thrills residents can visit the local casino. The city has both a park and a public swimming pool for outdoor recreation. Lancaster is nearby and has a cinema, bars, restaurants and a museum for renters to enjoy.
Facts for Renters
The Exotic Feline Breeding Compound's Feline Conservation Center is in Rosamond, and is commonly referred to as The Cat House. It's home to over 70 different species of highly endangered cats, including several kinds of tigers, leopards and smaller wildcats.
Rosamond once had more water, and was called Sand Creek. As the water table receded, the area became arid. In the 1870s, a railroad stop was routed through the town, which allowed the community to grow and prosper, especially when gold ore was found there during the 1890s.
By the early 1900s, the lake in Rosamond was already dried up. Two brothers, Carl and Charles Hoyt, decided that the hard and flat surface was ideal for a wind-powered wagon. They claimed it could reach speeds of 75 miles per hour, though they usually stayed at lower speeds for safety reasons.
