History & History Related Items

Historically, the area was used mostly for grazing cattle, particularly by the Mission San Gabriel after it was founded in 1771. Richard Gird, the founder of Chino, also bought the land which would later become Chino Hills. Several club-type places were built including Carbon Canyon Mineral Springs. The rural use of the area was maintained until approximately the mid 1970ís when development began. By the late 20th Century, hundreds of homes and developments were built. Many of the neighborhoods were planned with parks and shopping in a central area surrounded by homes and apartments. The city finally incorporated in 1991.
