Renaissance Holiday Evening | UCLA Conference Center

SAVE THE DATE for Thursday December 4, 2014.  UCLA Conference Center is hosting a fundraiser for The Rim of the World Historical Society.  This event starts at 5:30 and is $65 per person.

Here is a little blurb about who the Historical Society is and what they do for the community!

The Rim of the World Historical Society.

Founded in 1986, the Historical Society was conceived as part of an “election platform” in Crestline’s annual race for Honorary Mayor. Originally known as the Crest Forest Historical Society, the group soon found itself representing all west-end mountain communities from Snow Valley to Cedarpines Park.

In 1997, the name was changed to the Rim of the World Historical Society. The Historical Society serves as a resource for all those interested in the history of the San Bernardino Mountains. School programs and lecture series are available free to the public.

Does ARROWHEAD Water really come from Lake Arrowhead?

On occasion when I tell people I live in Arrowhead, the question arises… “Is that where Arrowhead Water comes from?”

Have you heard of Arrowhead Water?  Have you ever drank Arrowhead Water?  The big question is, where does Arrowhead Water come from?

arrowhead-mountain-spring-water-profile

 

The following info was found on Wikipedia:

Arrowhead Water, also known as Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water, is a brand of drinking water that is sold in the western United States, particularly in Arizona, the Northwest, and in California, where it is sometimes produced.

Discovery

Arrowhead Mountain Spring Water takes its name from a natural rock formation in the San Bernardino Mountains shaped like a giant arrowhead. The arrowhead is naturally barren; it is not manicured in any way. Native American legend says the formation was burned in the mountain by the fall of an arrow from Heaven, showing the way to the healing hot springs. Adjacent streams and springs are the original source and namesake of Arrowhead water.

The first documented reference to Arrowhead springs (Agua Caliente) was in records of priests stationed at Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, around 1820. David Noble Smith was the founder of the first sanitarium facilities at Arrowhead Springs in 1863, which were used to treat patients with tuberculosis and numerous other ailments. By the 1880s, the Arrowhead waters were famous for their supposed curing powers. By the early 20th century, the hot springs were a popular resort for tourism and vacationing.

 

History of the Arrowhead Water Brand

In 1909, The Arrowhead Springs Company was formed and the company’s water products were marketed in Southern California. The water was transported from Arrowhead Springs, north of San Bernardino, California, to Los Angeles in glass-lined railroad tank cars. In 1917, the bottling operations moved to a new plant in Los Angeles. In 1929, the Arrowhead Springs Company merged with the company that marketed Puritas water, and began co-marketing the Puritas products with Arrowhead water. Puritas water products were first introduced in Los Angeles in 1894.

The Arrowhead and Puritas brands were bottled in the same plants and co-marketed until the 1970s. Arrowhead Springs marketed the brands in separate containers that sometimes carried the Arrowhead or Puritas names alone, but containers were often labeled “Arrowhead and Puritas.” The Arrowhead Beverage Company was the bottler for many different brands of water and soft drinks including seltzer, fruit-flavored soda, and ginger ale.

In 1932, another important development for the company happened in the Los Angeles area, as it was named the official water refreshment of that year’s Olympic Games, held at the City of the Stars.

Arrowhead water returned to the Olympic Games again in 1984, when the games were again held in Los Angeles.

Water sources

As of 2008, according to the their bottle label, sources of water used are:

A local water source since 2010 is located in Ruby Mountain Springs, Chaffee County, Colorado.

Other labels found in Washington list a source of the water as Hope Springs, Hope, British Columbia.

  • Livermore, CA Municipal Water Supply (Label on the orange cap on the 5 gallon Eco-Sense bottles used in dispensers)
