Llano (Spanish for "Plain") is an unincorporated community located in Los Angeles County, California, near the San Bernardino County line. The town has a population of about 1,200.
Socialist community of Llano was organized in 1914 in what is now the Antelope Valley north of Los Angeles. The community moved in 1918, leaving behind the "ghost" of an alternative future for Los Angeles.
Llano is located about 25 miles (40 km) southeast of Palmdale in the Antelope Valley portion of Southern California. The town of Pearblossom lies to the west, while the town of Piñon Hills lies to the east. It is a few feet from the San Gabriel Mountains
Pearblossom Highway (as State Route 18), and Pearblossom Highway (as State Route 138) runs through the heart of Llano and is its 2 principal streets.
Llano is a name derived from Spanish meaning "plain".
Llano was once the home of English writer Aldous Huxley.
At the turn of the 20th century there were socialist colonies in Llano, the most notable being Job Harriman's Llano del Rio commune. The ruins of Llano del Rio are still extant along Highway 138 east of 165th Street East.
