“learn the culture and history of Chino”

The Yorba family was among the most influential in the early history of the Prado Basin. José Antonio Yorba was granted the Rancho Santiago de Santa Ana, 60,000 acres between present-day San Diego and Santa Ana, in 1801. His son, Bernardo Yorba, added to the family holdings with the purchase of 18,000 acres in the Rincon area from Juan Bandini. Bernardo's son, Raymundo (also spelled Raimundo) built the first house at the Yorba-Slaughter Adobe site in 1851. The structure burned and was replaced by the present structure in 1852-53. The adobe, built by Indian laborers from a rancheria east of the property, was known as "Buena Vista." The road at the foot of the hill was a regularly used part of the Fort Yuma to Los Angeles Road, and the Yorba Adobe was an optional stage stop for the Butterfield Overland Mail from 1858 to the start of the Civil War. The rancho was prosperous, and Raymundo Yorba was the most affluent of the land owners in the Prado Basin.
