With the backing of Southern Pacific Railroad magnate Henry E. Huntington, Mount Rubidoux was purchased by Frank Miller of the Mission Inn in 1906, in an attempt to beautify the mountain and to sell residential lots at its base, a road was built and vegetation planted, and a cross erected. The nation's first annual outdoor Easter sunrise service was initiated in 1909 and inspired similar programs across the country. The Peace Tower was built in 1925. Arthur Benton Architect.
