If you want to visit a city located in the Mojave Desert with a large number of historical attractions the right destination for you in 2021 is Victorville in California.
There is a very interesting story of how Victorville came to be. At the end of the 19th century, a telegraph station was established on the track of the "Victor" railway, named after the general director of the California Southern Railway, Jacob Nash Victor, and so what is now called Victorville began to develop. The village that formed around that railway facility was known as Victor. In the early 20th century, they changed that name to Victorville, so as not to confuse it with the city of Victor in Colorado.
Since Victorville has been around since the mid-19th century it has plenty of historical attractions worth visiting in 2021.
