Get to know Redlands, CA
Redlands lies roughly 10 miles from downtown San Bernardino in the Greater Los Angeles area. The earliest Anglo settlers were Mormons who purchased Rancho San Bernardino, founded nearby San Bernardino, and established a prosperous farming community. When the Mormons were summoned back to Utah in 1857, Benjamin Barton purchased some of the land and planted vineyards and built a winery. In the 1880’s the railroads came to the area, triggering the Southern California land boom. Frank E. Brown and E.G. Judson established the city as a center for the citrus industry. They named the city for the color of the adobe soil. The City of Redlands was incorporated in 1888. It was the center of fruit packing in the area by the 1930’s. It was a bedroom community for military personnel in the second half 20th century. Popular attractions include the Kimberly Crest House and Gardens, the Redlands Bowl, and the Lincoln Shrine.
