Chino Valley AZ
Nestled comfortably in the mountains of central Arizona, 15 miles north of Prescott, Chino Valley AZ is the site of the first Territorial Capital of Arizona. The capital moved to Prescott in 1864, then to Phoenix in 1912. “Chino” is the Spanish name for the abundant curly grama grass growing in the area. Chino Valley has a mild climate with over 300 days of sunshine a year. In the summer bountiful vegetable gardens with corn, squash, and beans flourish. Summer’s harvest is celebrated at the annual corn dinner and dance held each Labor Day.
