On the southern face of the San Bernardino range, clearly visible from the city of San Bernardino, there is a large arrowhead shape pointing up and toward the Little Bear Valley. It is from this odd natural shape that the Arrowhead Lake Company took its name in 1920. They purchased the Little Bear Valley and uncompleted dam. Their plan was to develop the valley and lake behind the dam into a resort community. By 1923 the dam was completed and a road built along part of the north shore. A Norman style village complete with pavillion, outdoor movie theatre, restaurant and beach were constructed. Three hotels were built: the Arlington Lodge, Village Inn and North Shore Tavern as well as a 9 hole golf course.
