Chino and its surroundings have long been a center of agriculture and dairy farming, serving the considerable demands for milk products in Southern California and much of the southwestern United States. Chinos rich agricultural history dates back to the Spanish land grant forming Rancho Santa Ana del Chino. The area specialized in orchard, row crops and dairy. Downtown Chino is home to satellite branches of the San Bernardino County Library and Chaffey Community College, the Chino Community Theatre, the Chino Boxing Club and a weekly Farmer's Market. In 2008 the City of Chino was awarded the prestigious "100 Best Communities for Youth" award for the second time in three years.Chino hosted shooting events for the 1984 Summer Olympics at the Prado Olympic Shooting Park in the Prado Regional Park.

The land grant on which the town was founded was called Rancho Santa Ana del Chino. Santa Ana
is Spanish for Saint Anne, but the exact meaning of "Chino" has been explained in different ways. One explanation is that the "Chino," (curly-haired person or mixed-race person) was the chief of the local Native American village.The president of the Chino Valley Historical Society, drawing on US Civil War-era letters, designates the "curl" referenced in the toponym as that at the top of the grama grass that abounded in the valley.
Packing and Storage Tips
Lets Start With The Ten Commandments of Self Storage
Preparing Your Items for Storage
- Use boxes that are the same in size - they will stack up much easier and utilize the space you have much better.
- As you stack, place heavy boxes on the bottom and lighter on the top. Seems logical but we have seen many a crumbled box.
- Make sure that you leave walkways between boxes so you can have ready access.
- Half full boxes tend to collapse easier during stacking.
- Leave a little space between your unit walls and boxes - helps air circulate
- Storing a refrigerator or washer/dryer? Leave doors slightly ajar this can help prevent mold from growing.
- NO flammables or combustibles allowed in any of the storage units.
- Photo or Video document your stored items thoroughly.
- Label your boxes for quick identification.
- Bubble wrap and newspaper fragile items.
Place smaller items in uniformly sized boxes. Completely fill each box with heavier items on the bottom and lighter items on the top. Uniformly sized boxes stack easier and conserve storage space.
