Photograph of the exterior view of the Henry Fisher residence in Redlands, ca.1900. The two-story house has a touch of both Italianate and Mission Revival style. It features arched windows, Spanish tiled roofs and an arcade; which are evident in most Mission Revival homes. It also features low-pitched roofs, balustraded balcony, decorative brackets around windows, a square tower (center), and extended eaves; which are all characteristics of Italianate style buildings. Vines can be seen growing wildly covering one of the balconies (center). The lawn is well manicured.; "During the 1890's, people came for the most part from New England and from the Chicago area. At first many of them came because of impaired health, liked what they saw, and decided to remain. Henry Harbinson Sinclair and Henry Fisher are two examples of the kinds of people who became attracted to the City of Redlands. Sinclair, a New Yorker, received training in the shipping business and in marine law. He came to Southern California for his health. Fisher, from Pennsylvania, controlled much of the Keystone State's oil pipeline system and disposed of his interests to Standard Oil. In 1892, Sinclair and Fisher, now located in Redlands, joined with other investors and organized the Redlands Electric Light and Power Company. The first generation of three-phase electrical power in the United States was achieved by the Redlands company in 1893 and served, not only as an important chapter in electric power history, but also as a tribute to the farsightedness of Sinclair, Fisher and their associates." -- unknown author.
