In the late 1800's the railroad companies encouraged development of tourist hotels along their lines. Loma Linda began as one such development known as Mound City. In the early 1800's Mound City developers built cottages, shops and the Mound City Hotel on the Site, but the project failed. In the late 1890's a group of Los Angeles businessmen and physicians purchased the hotel and reopened it as a health resort and convalescent home called Loma Linda, the Spanish words meaning "pretty hill."
