This 217-page hardbound book is filled with hundreds of historic photos, ephemera, newspaper articles, illustrations, and maps. The book chronicles the fascinating 150-year saga of the sanitariums, resorts, and famous spring water, at Arrowhead Springs, California, in the foothills of the San Bernardino Mountains. The development of Arrowhead Springs is intertwined with the pioneers and settlers who came to the San Bernardino Valley in the 1850’s, and established a collection of frontier communities that blossomed into the citrus belt of Southern California. Named for the huge natural arrowhead landmark emblazoned on the adjacent mountainside, Arrowhead Springs is a beautifully preserved oasis of hot and cold flowing mineral springs and streams. The resort’s chic hotels were a favorite haven for Hollywood’s greatest stars, as well as politicians, and tycoons of industry. The 1939 luxury hotel and the many other facilities that remain on the property today, stand as amazing reminders of the resort’s long and colorful history. The rare photos and memorabilia contained in the book weave together the history and legends of Arrowhead Springs, from the development of the first crude sanitarium built by D.N. Smith in 1864, to the magnificent hotel at the site today.
