An Overview of Redlands
Widely recognized as the "Jewel of the Inland Empire," Redlands is located off Interstate 10 in San Bernardino County, approximately 10 miles east of downtown San Bernardino. Originally part of the territory of the Agua Caliente and Morongo tribes of the Cahuilla people, Redlands became a hub for citrus production and an interurban connection for the Pacific Electric Railway between Los Angeles and San Bernardino during the early 1900`s. During the mid- to late 20thcentury, Redlands became home to numerous light manufacturing firms and a "bedroom community" for military personnel and the aerospace industry. By the end of the 20th century, residential development overtook citrus production though high tech firms such as ESRI continue to find Redlands the perfect fit for their business.
