The Story of Arrowhead Springs

Wednesday, March 11th | 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Mark Landis, historian and author of Arrowhead Springs, California’s Ideal Resort

There was a time when one of Hollywood’s hottest celebrity hangouts was right in our backyard. The Arrowhead Springs Hotel, just north of San Bernardino, was a favorite haunt of Elizabeth Taylor, Humphrey Bogart, Lucille Ball, and many others.

But there’s more to Arrowhead Springs than celebrities and famous bottled water. Join historian Mark Landis, author of Arrowhead Springs, California’s Ideal Resort to learn more about the luxury hotel’s humble origins and the mythical arrowhead formation and springs that defined the region.
