Welcome to San Bernardino! The official county seat of San Bernardino County in the Inland Empire, the 17th largest city in California, and 100th largest city in the nation. Occupying majority of the San Bernardino Valley, original native inhabitants of the area referred to the territory as “The Valley of the Cupped Hand of God”. In 1860 a gold rush began in the area with William F. Holcom discovered gold in the region that came to be known as Holcomb Valley. A second strike followed shortly thereafter in the area known as Lytle Creek. By that time, San Bernardino had grown into one of the most important trading hubs in Southern California.
Atop the San Bernardino Mountains in Riverside, California is a natural rock formation rising up in the shape of an arrowhead where both hot and cold springs can be found. The naturally formed arrowhead-shaped rock and water springs became a center attraction around which many local legends surfaced. Native Americans believed that an arrow from heaven had burned the formation onto the mountainside in order to guide tribes to the area where they could be healed. In the mid-19th century, Dr. David Noble Smith claimed that a saint-like being had appeared to him in a vision revealing the location of a far-off land with an exceptional climate and curative waters, marked by the shape of a gigantic arrowhead. Smith began his search in Texas and in 1857 he eventually arrived at Arrowhead Springs where his journey ended. By 1889 a hotel had sprung up on-site and word of the general health benefits from the spring water had become infamous. The popularity and intrigue surrounding the crystal clear water from the cold springs inspired Seth Marshall to set up a bottling service and in 1905 water from the cold springs began being shipped to neighboring cities under the newly created, albeit still well-known, trademark, “Arrowhead”.
