- Chino Hills is a city in San Bernardino County, California. Like much of the surrounding area, Chino Hills was first inhabited by members of the Tongva tribe on land which was later the subject of Spanish claim, and Mexican land Grants to the prominent Lugo family, including son-in-law Isaac Williams.
During the California Gold Rush, the ranch was a popular stopover for travelers. The Williams claim to the Chino Rancho was patented in 1869. Richard Gird was the next owner of the Rancho. Beginning in 1887, his land was subdivided and laid out creating the neighboring town of Chino. Due to its topography of rolling hills, Chino Hills was primarily rural prior to the mid 1970s. Most of the land was used for equestrian purposes or dairies however rapid and extensive housing developments followed throughout the 1980s and early 1990s. At the same time an incorporation effort had begun and in 1991 the city was incorporated. It is only recently that the housing development in Chino Hills has slowed.
Today Chino Hills is an affluent community, and was ranked 34th in Money Magazine’s “Best places to live 2012”. Chino is home to Vellano Country Club and private Greg Norman designed golf course, Los Serranos golf course. While most neighborhoods are arranged in a village-type format with strategically placed shopping centers and amenities, there are also a number of master-planned subdivisions throughout Chino Hills. The Shoppes at Chino Hills have also become a popular destination for shopping in the city.
According to the City’s 2009 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report, the top employers in the city are: Chino Valley Unified School District, City of Chino Hills
