Chino has long been a center of agriculture and dairy farming. Chino’s rich agricultural history dates back to the Spanish land grant forming Rancho Santa Ana del Chino. The original inhabitants of Chino were the Tongva. The Tongva had a settlement called Wapijangna in the Santa Ana River watershed. Some residents of Wapijanga were baptized at Mission San Gabriel, which was established in 1771. The Spanish crown claimed the land, at least nominally, until Mexican independence was finalized and possession fell to the Mexican government. Read more about the history of Chino HERE.
