Rolling Hills Estates history:

Rolling Hills Estates became the 60th city in Los Angeles County on 18 September 1957. Though small, with a population of 3,500 at that time, its residents were committed to their rural atmosphere and open spaces. The city was enlarged in 1959 with the addition of the Montecillo, Chandler Quarry, Country Club Estates and northern Masongate areas in the eastern and western portions of the city. During the early 1960's, other areas were also added to the city, including: the Peninsula Center, Harbor Sight, the Ranch, Rolling Hills park Estates, Highridge, Hillcrest Manor, Hillcrest Meadows, Terraces, Cresta Verdes and more. The site of the then-closed Palos Verdes Landfill was annexed in 1982 to assure proper use of that facility in the future.

Palos Verdes is the Spanish name for the Indian term "green trees."
