The city of Redlands is located in San Bernardino California. It was once part of a tribe of Native Americans before the Spanish came to the area in the 1770s. In the late 1800s the railroad was booming and it was slowly making its way across the state of California. When it reached the area that would eventually be called Redlands, it changed everything.
The climate, area and ability to get water made the city of Redlands a perfect place to grow citrus and it quickly became a citrus based city. The settlers decided to call the city Redlands because of the rich red color that the soil produced. At one time there was over 15,000 acres of thriving citrus crops. Today things are much different. There is only one small citrus crop left, and it only occupies around 2500 acres of land.
The city of Redlands sits on over 36 square miles of land. With a population of around 70,000 people this gives the city of Redlands a population density of around 1900 people per square mile. The city has seen significant growth since 1890 when the population was only 1900 people. By the year 1940 the population had grown to well over 14,000 people. By 1980 there were around 43,000 people living in Redlands.
