Loma Linda is a unique community of 21,000. The city has been a national center of health and wellness research for decades. Loma Linda offers residents an alternative to the intense, often anonymous lifestyle so characteristic of modern life. It is no surprise to find numerous families strolling along the city’s tree lined streets, or playing in its numerous parks.
In the late 1800s, Loma Linda began as a development of tourist halls called Mound City, as encouraged by railroad companies. In the early 1800s shops and cottages were built but the project would later fail. During the late 1890s, a group of businessmen and physicians from Los Angeles bought the hotel and reopened it as a convalescent home and health resort. They called it Loma Linda, meaning “pretty hill” in Spanish. The city was incorporated in 1970.
Thanks to the fame of Loma Linda University (LLU) Medical Center, visitors come to the city from around the world. Some are patients, others are students, some come to teach, heal or perform research. Many decide to stay. The LLU Medical Center and nearby Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center are the backbone of the city economy.
Loma Linda is home to one of the largest concentrations of Seventh-day Adventists in the world, with the Loma Linda University Church of Seventh-day Adventists, on the LLU campus, having one of the largest Adventist congregations in the world.
