Rancho Chino Adobe Site

Near this site, Isaac Williams in 1841 built a large adobe home, located on the 22,000-acre Rancho Chino which he acquired from his father-in-law Antonio Lugo. The 'Battle of Chino' occurred at the adobe on September 26-27, 1846, during which 24 Americans were captured by a group of about 50 Californios. Located on the Southern Immigrant Trail to California, the adobe later became an inn and stage stop famous for its hospitality.

Plaque placed by the State Department of Parks and Recreation in cooperation with Chino Valley Historical Society, Billy Holcomb Chapter of E Clampus Vitus, and San Bernardino County Museum, June 5, 1982.
