In 1850 Thomas Bums, a loyal and probably nostalgic Scot, settled on top of Ben Lomond Mountain to grow grapes and make wine. He named his mountain for the historic mountain of Scotland, the land of his birth.
Thirty-seven years later, J.P. Pierce, the enterprising owner of the Pacific manufacturing company, and Thomas L. Bell, his mill superintendent, laid out a town site at the foot of the mountain on the flat north bank of the San Lorenzo River between Hick's Ford and Priest's Ford, both now sites of bridges on Highway 9. Pierce wanted to call his town "Pacific Mills," but when he applied for a post office, the postal department took exception to the commercial association of the name proposed. He and Bell then settled on a second choice, "Ben Lomond."
