Wigwam Motel #7 is one of only 3 left of the Redford Motels, the other two being in Cave City, Kentucky and Holbrook, Arizona. The kitsch of these motels remain a popular symbol of the driving culture of the United States and Americana in general.

Like Motel #6 in Holbrook, Arizona, Motel #7 is located on the legendary Route 66. Though traffic declined badly following Interstate 40, reaching a nadir by the 1970s with by-the-hour rental and a sign "Do it in a tipi", the complex has since been restored and remains popular with visitors along that road.

Built in 1947 by Frank Redford, the Wigwam Motel #7 of San Bernardino (right on the border of Rialto), California was the last of his tepee motels. It was also the largest of the Wigwam motels, with 2 rows of 19 tepees each.

In 1882, E. J. Waite planted the first orange grove in Redlands. By the 1930s, Redlands was the largest producer of Navel Oranges in the World, with 61 km^2 of citrus groves, and becoming one of the centers of the Orange (later Inland) Empire. That has declined since the 1950s, as the area was gradually overtaken by suburban development.

Built in 1897 by Cornelia Hill, this French ch√Ęteau style mansion was purchased and expanded in 1905 by John Kimberly of the Kimberly-Clark paper fortune, and used as the family winter house. In 1979, Mary Shrink donated her family mansion to the City of Redlands as a botanical gardens and museum. It is perhaps the largest of the many ostentatious Victorian mansions of Redlands, known by the end of the 19th century as the "Jewel of the Inland Empire".
