A nothing town in the middle of nowhere with the highest population of druggies and rapists in Sothern California.
If Lucerne is known for anything it's the legend of the Knights of the Golden Circle and its Confederate roots there. The KGC planted a grove of cottonwoods in the shape of a circle supposedly hiding clues to a hidden trove of priceless treasures. Or the "national treasure" that the movie was roughly based around.
Modern-day drunken desperadoes and Southern cutthroats of Lucerne Valley: "damn the Stars and Stripes."
