Redlands California Temple

Redlands California Temple - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 5th Avenue, Redlands, California, United States The Redlands California Temple sits on the original Mormon landholdings of the San Bernardino colony, established in 1851 under the direction of Brigham Young. The ethnically diverse settlement provided colony life to Mormon pioneers, African-American families, Jewish merchants, Spanish rancho families, former Mexican government officials, and local Cahuilla and Serrano Indians.In planning for a future city at the settlement, a center block was designated as the site for a temple. However, no record exists of any efforts to erect this temple as the Saints stay in San Bernardino was relatively short.Today, the Redlands California Temple stands in an East Redlands residential area once occupied by orange groves. As a special treat, guests attending the groundbreaking ceremony were served orange juice, made from the trees removed from the site.Behind the reception desk is a beautiful art glass panel once part of a San Bernardino meetinghouse built in 1930.
