ALLEN'S STATION (see Redding)

AMERICIAN RANCH (see Anderson)

Post, express and tlelphraph office, situated on the California and Oregon Railroad, 156 miles from Sacramento and eleven miles south of Redding.  Mr. J. P. Wright was the first settler of the town site, which dates from the advent of the railroad in 1872.  It has enjoyed a steady growth until it is now an important trading center, and on of the shipping points for the northern portion of the State.  The trade of Anderson extends to Modoc and Lassen Counties, and Lake County, Oregon, which traffic is encouraged by a good system of roads.  The above counties are more convenient to Anderson than to any other town on the railroad.  Stages and freight teams run daily.  The principal industries of this locality are farming, stockraising and lumbering.  There are six saw mills (one bveing a planing mill, sawmill and sash and door factory combined) within a radius of thirty miles of Anderson.  Several of them are of large capacity; two of them are run by steam power and four by water.  The town possesses a weekly newspaper, edited by Mr. J. E. McGarrey, which enjoys a large circulation in the surropunding country; a flouring mill of fifty barrels per day capacity, and many important business houses.  At present writing a large and handsome brick school house is nearing completion.  It is intended to accommodate 250 children.  Its cost will be about $10,000.  The hotels are three in number

DOG (See Redding)


Post and express office, situated in Fall River Valley, eighty miles northeast of the railroad at Redding, and eighty-seven miles from Shasta, the county seat.  The town was established in 1872, and  has now a population of 250.  Elevation, 3,100 feet.  Supported by stock interests -- cattle and horse raising principally.  The country within a radius within thirty-five or forty miles is supplied principally with flour and grain from Fall River Valley, and the extensive area of fine land in the valley is capable of a much larger production.  The town possesses a hotel, general store, flouring mill, livery stable, door and sash factory, wagon shop, saw mill, at the head of the valley, and several smaller businesses.  The flouring mill is of eighty barrels per day capacity and has a market for its flour in three counties.  The cost of the mill was $20,000.  The water power at this point is very great, being, as Mr. Winter, the mill owner says, capable of running all the factories in California.  The river here has a fall of fifty feet in nine hundred.  The trout fishing here is excellent, especially in the spring and summer.  The traveling public and fishing excursionists will find the hotel at the Mills a comfortable place to stop at.  It is newly furnished and provides a good bill of fare.  The planing mill manufactures doors and sash extensively, at San Francisco prices.  This establishment is a boon to new settlers and builders in this section.  The mill is ran by water.  A furniture department is contemplated.

FLAT CREEK (See Shasta)

FORT CROOK (See Burgettville)

This place, the leading mining camp of the county, is situated fifteen miles north of Shasta, on the Redding and Yreka stage route.  The approach from Shasta is over one of the best roads in the county, the first twelve miles being a toll road, owned by Mr. Charles Camden.  French Gulch, although one of the oldest mining towns in Northern California, represented only a shadow of its former importance up to about five years since, when a revival in quartz mining took place, since which time and at present it is the scene of great activity, subsidiary to the town, at a distance of about eight miles, are the famous Deadwood mines.  The town has post and telegraph offices, one hotel, two general stores, three saloons, a school house and a church.  Population about three hundred.

LUDWIG'S BRIDGE (See Cottonwood)

MIDDLETON (See Shasta)

Post, express and telegraph offices, situated in the foothills, on the forks of Cow and Clover Creeks, eleven miles by county road from Anderson, on the California and Oregon Railroad, with which point it has daily stage connection and regular freight teams.  The town is in a healthy location, with an abundant water supply and drainage, and water power of enough volume to run all the manufactures of the State.  A flouring mill of two stone capacity is all that utilizes the water at present, but an endeavor is being made to start a woolen mill, for the running of which there would be no lack of material in this vicinity.  There are a number of saw mills back in the hills.  The population of Millville is about five hundred.  The Millville and Anderson Telegraph Company, a company of Millville gentlemen have built a line ten miles long to Anderson, costing $1,200.  It is a convenience not enjoyed by many towns of the railroad in this part of the country.  Millville possesses a weekly newspaper, and a good hotel kept by Messrs. Pullen & Long, whose experience enable them to anticipate the wants of the traveling public.  The newspaper here is conducted by Mr. Leonard W. Kidd, long connected with the San Francisco press.

This, the second town in size in the county, is situated about twenty miles from the southern boundary, on the California and Oregon Railroad, thirty-five miles north of Red Bluff and two hundred and fifty-five miles from San Francisco.  From 1872 up to last year it was the northern terminus of the line, and under the stimulus given by this fact, as well as the favorable agricultural character of the surrounding country, Redding advanced rapidly into importance as a shipping point.  The cessation of railroad construction for so long a period at this point naturally resulted in the building of a series of roads radiating from it to all points in Northern and Northeastern California, the advantages so gained to the town will in a great measure remain, notwithstanding the railroad's further extension north.  Freights for Weaverville, all points in Trinity, Modoc and the whole of northeastern Shasta will continue for years to come to make Redding their railroad point.  The town has many flourishing business houses, including a bank, four good hotels, school and a commodious public hall.  In its newspaper interests Redding is particularly well served, three weekly papers being published here, receiving a generous and hearty support from the people of Northern California.  The town has complete postal, express and telegraphic communications.  Population about seven hundred.

This place, the county seat and the largest town, is situated in the southwesterly part of the county, on the main road leading from Redding to Weaverville and Yreka.  It is seven miles distant from Redding, which is the present shipping point, although the railroad approaches within about two miles farther north, and arrangements are in progress for a more immediate connection.  The road from Redding, as well as beyond Shasta, is an excellent turnpike, with easy grades.  The town is prettily laid, and lying as it does in the foothills of the mountains surrounding the Sacramento Valley at an altitude of 1160 feet, above the sea, is as attractive a town as can be found in the mountains, and in a sanitary point of view is excelled by none.  The place was settled in 1850, and was originally known as "Reading's Springs", being afterwards changed to Shasta in honor of the grand mountain peak which overlooks this entire region.  The U. S. Land Office for northern California is located here.  Shasta possesses full and complete telegraph, daily mail and express facilities.  The Shasta Courier (weekly) is published here and ranks in age as the third weekly newspaper of the State.  It has safely weathered the periods of depression under which the county has heretofore suffered, at times, until now partaking of the renewed prosperity which has been assuredly accruing of late years, it has become a flourishing and well sustained sheet.  The principal public and larger buildings are comprised in the Court House, two churches, two hotels, and the halls of the Masons and Odd Fellows.

History of SHASTA CO. as of 1885
This county, the second from the north in the central tier of the State, is bounded on the north by Siskiyou and Modoc, on the east by Lassen, on the south by Tehama, and on the west by Trinity Counties.  Its average dimensions are about sixty miles north and south by about seventy miles east and west, the total area included within its boundaries being a little over two and a half million acres.  In its natural characteristics Shasta is akin to its sister counties of Northern California the same grand development of nature's upheavals being prominent, although not so completely absorbing its surface as the more compactly grouped ranges of the Sierras to the southeast, in Plumas, Sierra and Nevada Counties.  Nature here seems to have in some measure relinquished her close grasp on the giants of hill and mountain, and by permitting their straggling wider from the main column provided for the introduction of a larger proportion of tillable land; but, as if in order to recompense herself for this leniency; in the ranges of the Sierras coming up from the southeast she brings up another towering line upon the county's western border, in the coast range; which, running a little east of north, is gradually converges to fraternize with its stalwart brother of the east.  The county may be properly said to be included between these two ranges, and the land mountainous, though very materially lessened in its abruptness as it falls away to the vallies of the Sacramento, Upper Sacramento and McCloud Rivers.  These vallies, together with the additional vallies lying upon the smaller tributaries of these streams, afford a much larger proportion (and mostly of a better quality) of farming land than is found in the other mountain counties.

Fall River Valley, the principal valley of the county, containing over one hundred and eighty quare miles, lies in the eastern part of the county; about one tenth of it is under cultivation.  In this valley about twenty per cent. of the land is swamp land, easily susceptible of reclamation, which is being done gradually.  The smaller vallies have all first- class bottom land.  Unimproved lands range from $5 to $12 per acre.  Along the line of the Sacramento, on its western shore in the southern part of the county, the old Redding grant includes about all of the good land - it is what is known as first-class bottom, and has been largely sold in small parcels to settlers, the balance being held by its owners for similar disposal.  There is also, among the various vallies, much public land yet open for entry, particulars of which can be fully ascertained both at the land office in Shasta, the county seat and the office of the Immigration Association of California, 10 California street, San Francisco.

In its mining interests Shasta's history is similar to the balance of Northern California.  Her streams and old channels were all thickly spread with that gravel cap which contained the rich bonanzas of the placer era, and until these were exhausted she presented the same marvelous yield as the other diggings; since that time comparatively little was done in mining until about six years ago, when the attention of experts began to be attracted to Shasta, and already important advances in quartz mining have taken place, and although this industry is yet in its infancy, sufficient developments have been made to ensure a permanence of results, when capital in sufficient strength takes hold.  In a smaller disjointed way mining is still followed by large numbers, and it remains, as in days of old, the chief occupation of the people.

Shasta's remoteness from commercial points up to 1872 was a material drawback, in that year the California and Oregon Railroad was opened to Redding, in the southern part of the county, materially relieving that hardship.  There the line halted until last year, when a further extension was made to Delta.  The greater part of the way through the county is now covered, and although the gigantic obstacles to be overcome in the gap yet remaining between the two termini will require much time, too much has already been done by the parties in interest for them to stop where they are, or even to permit the work to languish long.

In a sanitary point of view the county takes rank equally with any county in the State.  Its atmosphere is dry and pure, and in the vallies where the thermometer frequently rises even as high as 110 degrees no corresponding debilitation is felt, and in winter 30 degrees is about the limit.  Catarrhal and chest diseases are very infrequent, and a stay in Shasta for a time long enough to give it an opportunity to show results will satisfy the skeptical, if such there be.

In its scenic attractions Shasta also takes first rank.  On its northern line the quaint Castle Rocks would, if no other attractions offered, be sufficient to repay the toil and time required to visit them.  Seen from a distance, they show castellated battlements, with bastions, scarp and counterscarp, the embodiment of military strength; from another view they seem to tell the same story, only with centuries of age piled upon its first appearance.  Lower Soda Springs, Crystal Lake, the various waterfalls, of which there are many, and the beauties surrounding Tower House might all be cited with effect in this connection.

There are in the county about fifty school houses in as many districts.  Population nearly 11,000.  Taxable property, $2,000,000.
