Located in the San Gorgonio Pass between Mt. San Gorgonio to the north and Mt. San Jacinto to the south, lies the City of Banning. Named for Phineas Banning, the stagecoach line tycoon who developed a stage line between the Port of Los Angeles and Yuma, Arizona through the San Gorgonio Pass. General Banning also figures prominently in the history of the City of Wilmington, California, where he developed his shipping company transporting and receiving goods from the port facilities in San Pedro.
The first European settlor to make the area home was Dr. Isaac Smith in 1853. The fledgling settlement began right around the time of the Colorado River Gold Rush. Dr. Smith built a ranch to live in which became known as Smith’s Station. It later became the Highland Home and later, Highland ranch, which still exists as a ranch, restaurant and entertainment venue today.
