The first Europeans known to visit what would become Palmdale were members of Juan Bautista de Anza's 1774 expedition. On October 12th of that year, they found a hot spring on Mount Lee near present day Edwards Air Force Base which they named Buena Vista Spring after Don Gaspar de Portolà's lieutenant governor in Alta California. In 1887, landowner Benjamin Davis built a winery on his property which he named Davis Winery after his wife. The winery became one of Southern California's largest producers of wine until its closure in 1957.

In 1909, J. Paul Getty purchased 400 acres (1 km²) from Davis for $7500 and began developing what would become Getty Villa (now part of the Getty Museum). In 1913-1914, he built a mansion at 2221 East Avenue (now demolished) which is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Getty House/Getty Villa (also now demolished). In 1916-1917 he built another mansion at 3333 East Avenue which still stands today and is also listed on the National Register as Getty House/Getty Villa #2 (currently used as offices for Antelope Valley College).

In 1923 oil was discovered on land owned by William Andrews Clark who began drilling wells soon thereafter. By 1927 there were over 1,000 wells in operation with production reaching over 100 million barrels before gradually declining due to depletion rates and competition from other sources such as Mexico and Saudi Arabia. By 1940 only 10% of original production remained while new discoveries had ceased altogether by 1970.
