The Historical Glass Museum opened to the public in 1985. In 1977 the Historical Glass Museum Foundation purchased a 1903 Victorian-style home at 1157 North Orange Street in Redlands. It was the beginning of a dream to preserve specimens of American glass from factories that were becoming extinct, as well as factories and glass artists currently producing glass. The Museum now houses the largest collection of American-made glass west of the Rocky Mountains.

The realization that “Women are from Venus and Men are from Mars” has spilled over into an acknowledgment that women’s interests often take a different focus than those of men in the activities and points of interest while on a vacation. This is not to say couples should not travel together, but rather that in addition to a family vacation or a trip with a spouse women also enjoy traveling together.
While many visitors come to California for the bright lights of Los Angeles and San Francisco, it can be nice to escape the hustle and bustle. Redlands is one of the best places in California to do this and enjoy all that nature has to offer in the Golden State.
Redlands is one of the oldest cities in California and is one of those small communities that seem to hold their small town charm… except when it comes to being haunted.
