In the late 1800's the railroad companies encouraged development of tourist hotels along their lines. Loma Linda began as one such development known as Mound City. In the early 1800's Mound City developers built cottages, shops and the Mound City Hotel on the Site, but the project failed. In the late 1890's a group of Los Angeles businessmen and physicians purchased the hotel and reopened it as a health resort and convalescent home called Loma Linda, the Spanish words meaning "pretty hill." The Loma Linda Hotel closed again in 1904, but in 1905 the Seventh-day Adventist Church purchased the former resort property and established a sanitarium and a nursing school. A school of medicine was opened in 1909.
The City of Loma Linda was incorporated in 1970, and the medical school has grown into Loma Linda University, a health-science University with Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Allied Health Professions and Public Health. Loma Linda orange groves, once the predominant land use, are giving way to residential developments as the city, with 21,200 residents, continues to grow.
