Day Trip in South Redlands Published by Museum Association
“Historic Redlands: Neighborhoods in South Redlands” has been published by the San Bernardino County Museum Association. The book, written by Museum Curator of History/Archives Michele Nielsen, offers a guided day trip through historic Redlands neighborhoods. It is fully illustrated with vintage photographs from the museum’s history division archives.
“This book grew out of a ‘day trip’ that the Museum Association put together earlier this year,” said Nielsen. “The tour was organized to take a close look at the built environment along a route that was laid out on the basis of historical photographs. Every building that’s pictured in the book still stands in the city - some are much as they were when they were constructed; others have changed through time.”
“Neighborhoods in South Redlands” is 80 pages long and bound with continuous-coil wire to allow it to lay flat. “We encourage people to get out and walk along these historic blocks,” said Nielsen, “but we designed the book so it would stay open in a car for those who prefer to explore behind the wheel.”
“Historic Redlands: Neighborhoods in South Redlands” is available for purchase at the Museum Store at the San Bernardino County Museum, and at Gerrard’s Market, Treasures, and other select retail establishments. The book can also be ordered by telephone or by mail from the Museum Store, (909) 307-2669 ext. 228 / TDD/TTY: (909) 792-1462.
