The Redlands

The Redlands area of Grand Junction is one of the most highly sought-after areas in the Grand Valley for home buyers.  It’s probably because The Redlands features outstanding outdoor recreation opportunities and amazing landscapes.

The Redlands is over 15.6 square miles and about 1700 acres.  An unincorporated community between Grand Junction and Fruita.  While driving along Monument Drive and you’ll come across Three Sisters area of Lunch Loops mountain biking trails through three miles of rocky terrain.  Homes in the area are pleasantly diverse: ranging from  new subdivisions, luxury homes, established homes and neighborhoods, to townhomes and condos. You can still find some older farms and ranches on acreage and luxury homes with acreage.  There are two golf course communities in the Redlands.  Redlands Mesa is the considered the top public golf course in Colorado and sits high on a ridge with luxury homes built around the golf course.  Tiara Rado is another golf course community, also with amazing views, homes and townhomes surrounding it.  Custom home lots can be found in a handful of subdivisions.

The Redlands are also close to so many indoor and outdoor entertainment venues, recreation areas and parks. Here residents also have access to miles of biking and hiking trails.

History of The Redlands

Like all of Mesa County, the Redlands was once Ute Indian territory until 1881 when the area was opened for immigrants. In that year, George Crawford, the founder of Grand Junction, first envisioned the Grand Valley from a point above the Fifth Street Bridge on Orchard Mesa. It was from here that the junction of the Grand (Colorado) and the Gunnison Rivers was viewed and the location for a new townsite determined.

According to the “100-Year History of Mesa County,” the Redlands remained a desert rangeland until 1905 when the private Redlands Irrigation Company developed irrigation water from the Gunnison River and began promoting the area. The first peach orchards on the Redlands were established by 1907. In 1909, Henry L. Doherty, owner of the Interurban rail and streetcar lines, purchased large land holdings on the Redlands, and built a larger dam on the Gunnison River. As a result, a hydroelectric plant was added, and irrigation water was delivered to a wider area of the Redlands. The reorganized Redlands Company operated a home ranch, employee camps, and a canning kitchen until 1925 when ownership turned over to the shareholders and the nonprofit organization changed its name to its current title of Redlands Water and Power Company.

The first Redlands school was built in 1916 and now houses the Church of the Nativity Episcopal. The building is located at 2157 Broadway across from the Redlands Middle School. The Redlands Community Center (previously know as the Redlands Women’s Club) was built in 1920 as the Grand Junction Country Club. The club converted to a community center when it closed in 1929, and has served the Redlands ever since. A relatively rare example of the Mission Style in the Grand Junction area, the Club was designated on the State Register of Historic Properties in 1995.
