Chino Hills is located in the southwest corner of San Bernardino County, California. The city borders Los Angeles County on the northwest, Orange County to the south and Riverside County to the southeast. The city has a total of 44.8 square miles much of which is undeveloped rolling hills.

During the 1700s this area was ruled by the Spanish and was a part of the Republic of Mexico. When the church founded the Mission of San Gabriel in 1771, the area now known as Chino Hills was used by the fathers to graze their cattle. When Mexico ceded the territory to the United States, Chino Hills became part of the state of California.

Because of the topography of the area, the land was used for dairies, horse rearing and cattle grazing. In the rush to build and develop the area, many historical structures were lost. 

The town of Chino was built in 1910. The area known as Sleepy Hollow, built as a summer resort in the 1920s, was a destination for bootleggers during Prohibition. Tourists from nearby Los Angeles were also attracted to the beauty and seclusion of the area. Later in the 1960s hippies and artists sought out the isolation of this hilly area to commune with nature. 

During the 80s and 90s housing development began at a rapid pace. By 1991, the population reached 42,000 and the area became incorporated. When the area was developed, the homes were laid out in a village style with shopping and parks within walking distance of nearby homes. Everything was done to preserve the beauty of the surrounding hills.

One of the showpieces of Chino Hills is the Vellano Country Club, a private golf course and housing development designed by golf great Greg Norman. With home prices exceeding $2 million, this housing development is touted as one of the most expensive in the area.

Los Serranos Golf and Country Club dates back to 1925 when it was built as the perfect escape for city dwellers. Today the course is a favorite Chino Hills attraction.
For upscale shopping, The Shoppes at Chino Hills feature some of the most popular designer brands. There are over 65 stores and restaurants of every description in the mall.

Money magazine voted Chino Hills as one of its “Best Places to Live”. Similarly, the FBI chose Chino Hills as one of the safest places to live. The area is known for great schools, spectacular views, first class housing and overall safe neighborhoods. Chino Hills Is definitely an ideal community.
