Ivanpah is a populated place in the Mojave National Preserve in San Bernardino County, California. There are several residences in the area, but no real village.
Ivanpah is located at the crossing of Ivanpah Road and the Union Pacific Railroad, which was the Los Angeles & Pacific Railroad until 1921 when it was bought out by Union Pacific. There was once a general store located here.
The original name for this crossing was Leastalk. The California and Eastern Railroad crossed the LA&SL railroad at this location. The California and Eastern abandoned operations in 1911, with the tracks being pulled up some time later.
