On the 15 freeway coming from Los Angeles to Las Vegas you can see this sign with this odd name! I always knew there was a story behind that name lol so I researched and had to go check it out my self! So yes there is and it's kind of an amazing, crazy story lol 😂 There is a hidden oasis with an oddball history. In 1944 LA radio evangelist Curtis H. Springer, self proclaimed minister (and quack doctor) decided the mineral springs were the ideal location for a health resort. He named it "Zzyzx mineral springs and health resort," touted as "the last word in health" and the last word in the English language -- a gimmick so it would be the last listing in any directory. How awesome is that he even named one of his streets BLVD of dreams.
