History

Lane's Station

Bryman was first a location of the second ranch called Lane's or Lane's Station belonging to Aaron G. Lane, one of the first settlers on the Mojave River. He relocated to the area 7 miles down river from his first ranch he had settled in 1859, (also called "Lane's"), at Lane's Crossing, for the better soil and water available from the river there. His ranch raised sheep and cattle and was well known for its crops of corn, melons and vegetables. He was one of the first to grow lucerne (alfalfa) in California, and sold his crops to the U. S. Army post at Camp Cady, from 1867.

He sold this ranch in November 1873.
