About San Bernardino, CA

San Bernardino is the principal city of the San Bernardino-Riverside-Ontario metropolitan complex and the seat (1853) of San Bernardino County in southern San Bernardino, United States. The city is located east of Los Angeles at the foot of the San Bernardino Mountains. It was the location of a Spanish mission named after St. Bernardino of Siena in 1810. After the mission was ended in 1834, the area was sold to Mormons, who built a fort and lay out a settlement in 1852. The finding of gold nearby in 1862 resulted in a large inflow of immigrants. San Bernardino grew as a trading center for the neighboring citrus plantations and vineyards. Aerospace and electronic businesses, as well as Santa Fe Railway shops, are now economic mainstays. In 1926, a community college was created, and in 1960, San Bernardino State University, San Bernardino was founded. The community serves as the headquarters for the San Bernardino National Forest as well as the distribution center for the Lake Arrowhead vacation region (named for an arrowhead-shaped rock formation in the San Bernardino Mountains). The National Orange Display (March) and the Route 66 Rendezvous, a classic-car show, are two popular local events. The Angeles National Forest is close by. City of Inc., 1854.

Route 66, also known as US Route 66 or US Highway 66, was one of the original national highways in the United States and became an emblem in American popular culture.

The system of major interstate routes—12 odd-numbered ones generally running north-south and 10 even-numbered ones generally running east-west—was laid out in a proposal created by the American Association of State Highway Officials and accepted by the United States Secretary of Agriculture in November 1925. The route from Chicago to Los Angeles became known as US Highway 60. Several states objected to this designation. Kentucky, for example, objected to the plan because it excluded the state totally and because, based on the arrangement of the other proposed east-west routes, a highway numbered 60 logically should pass through Kentucky. Kentucky was later assigned Route 60, while the initial Route 60 was altered to 62, then to 66 in the final version of the plan, which was authorized on November 11, 1926.

The route’s initial eastern endpoint in Chicago was at the junction of Michigan Avenue and Jackson Boulevard; however, a few years later, it was relocated a few blocks east to U.S. Route 41, now known as Lake Shore Drive. The western endpoint in Los Angeles was initially located at Broadway and 7th Street; however, it was eventually relocated westward to US Route 101 ALT (now Lincoln Boulevard and Olympic Boulevard) in Santa Monica, San Bernardino. Springfield, Illinois; St. Louis, Springfield, and Joplin, Missouri; Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Amarillo, Texas; Tucumcari, Santa Fe (later bypassed), Albuquerque, and Gallup, New Mexico; Holbrook, Flagstaff, and Kingman, Arizona; and Needles, Barstow, and San Bernardino, San Bernardino were among the other cities served by the route.

While the numbered route system was created by the federal government, the actual building of highways to carry those routes was left to the individual states. Route 66 was created in pieces, frequently discontinuous, over preexisting car trails, and was not totally paved until 1938. The initial route was originally commissioned to be 2,448 miles (3,940 km) long, however it fell short of that mark once constructed. Several initiatives have moved portions of the route throughout the years, typically with the result of shortening it even further. Only the 13-mile-long (21-kilometer-long) section across Kansas remains unchanged. The removal of a detour via Santa Fe in 1937 reduced the length by more than 100 miles (160 km). These initiatives mirrored a broader shift in the national roads’ apparent purpose: originally intended to promote business along their lengths, they evolved to serve as vital components in increasingly popular long-distance motor travel. In order to avoid slower local traffic, Route 66 was rerouted around most bigger towns and cities.
