History & History Related Items

Chino Valley history:

Chino Valley was set up to be the new territorial capital in January 1864, but the soldiers sent to do their duty made a big mistake thinking Del Rio Springs was near a mountain which looked like a thumb. Actually, that place was really what is now Prescott. Later in that same year, in May, the capital was moved to Prescott. The newly made Fort Whipple remained as Camp Clark until 1883. The mistaken mountain is now known as "Little Thumb Butte." U.S. Army Cavalry Lt. Amiel W. Whipple gave the community its name. "Chino" is the Mexican name for the abundant curly grama grass growing in the area.
