An important business center, situated eighteen miles southwest of Yreka, on the Scott River.  It is one of the oldest settlements and was the chief point in the western part of the county in Siskiyou's early mining history, which, as to its mining character, it still retains fully one-half of the business interests, being sustained by this industry.  The development of its fine agricultural surroundings have, however, within the past few years, elevated the farming interests into as much prominence as its mining.  As a commercial point it is the headquarters for the trade of western and Northwestern Siskiyou and the eastern part of Del Norte County, Happy Camp in the latter county getting a considerable portion of its supplies and all of its express matter via Fort Jones.  Among the more important business houses of the place may be noted Carlock's Bank, two flouring mills, several general stores, of which that of Mr. H. J. Diggles enjoys a flourishing trade, a hardware, clothing, furniture, millinery, two wagonmaking establishments, blacksmith shop and photographer, as well as a first-class livery stable, kept by Mr. Andrew A. Beam.  The Scott Valley News, published by Messrs. Curtis & Markey, is an influential and well-patronized weekly, alive to the interest of the town and surroundings, is doing good service in bringing before the country at large the many advantages of the section in which it is located.  Fort Jones has complete postal, express and telegraphic facilities, it is healthily located and has a population of about four hundred and fifty.

This city, the capital of the county, is situated on the west bank of Yreka Creek, in the western part of Shasta Valley.  It is 431 miles from San Francisco and 350 miles from Sacramento.  The route of the California and Oregon Stage Line passes through Yreka, where the headquarters of the Company are located, and necessarily pays some considerable tribute to the business interests of the city.  The town was settled in 1851, the precious dust found in many of the gulches and streams of Shasta Valley, attracting many of the argonauts of that day to this locality.  The town consequently ranks as the oldest in northern California.  The ephemeral prosperity of that era was exhausted with the working out of the placers which gave it its original attraction, and its subsequent history and development is the creation of the steadier element which remained behind after the adventurous portion had been drawn away by new discoveries.  Under the steadier influence of this remnant, with the accretions in population made by new comers of like character, there has been a gradual growth in the surrounding farming country until now, in this vicinity, no interests outside of agriculture are considered as of great importance - the rich, fertile farming and grazing lands of Shasta Valley furnishing ample opportunities, and the progress of this improvement only awaits the advent of through railroad connection to e assured of material increase in its ratio.  The altitude of Yreka is about 2,500 feet above the level of the sea, but the climate is mild, without extremes of heat or cold, and remarkably healthy and invigorating.  All fruits of the temperate zone grow to perfection, and the abundance of roses and vines which adorn the residence portions of the town is evidence sufficient of the salubrity of the soil and the geniality of the climate, while the generally substantial character of its buildings, both for residence and business, is evidence of the permanent character of her citizens.  In her business composition Yreka has and maintains her full proportion of trading, mercantile, mechanical and manufacturing interests, although in the last item her development is scarcely begun, as she possesses in the waters of Yreka Creek a power sufficient to drive almost an unlimited amount of machinery.  In hotel accommodations she is fully equipped, and the demand for the dissemination of news and general information on the part of her citizens is met with by the publication of the Yreka Semi-Weekly Journal, by Mr. Robert Nixon, and the Yreka Weekly Union, by Mr. George Rodgers - two enterprising and flourishing newspapers, fully alive to the demands of the city both present and prospective.  Yreka has full postal, express and telegraphic communications, and numbers about 1,500 in population.

History of SISKIYOU CO. as of 1885

This county, the central and largest of the three forming the northern tier of the State, is bounded on the north by the State of Oregon, on the east by Modoc, on the south by Shasta, Trinity and Humbolt, and on the west by Humboldt and Del Norte Counties, and contains a superficial area of 3,040 square miles, or 1,945,600 acres.

In its general topography Siskiyou can only be classed as a mountainous country, yet in the close dissection of the county in this respect some distinctive features, as compared with the other counties embraced in this publication, may be observed.  The tow grand ranges of mountains which extend through the State for the greater part along its eastern and western borders, have within the limits of this county been attracted together in the north, and in the commingling of their rugged heights reared up the some of the most gigantic monuments of Nature's grandeur that the world knows.  This feature is more appreciable when it is stated that the crests of both ranges uniformly tower as high as the lofty peaks of the Alps, and that Mount Shasta, the king of all the peaks of the State, whose summit perpetually hooded with snow pierces the azure at an altitude of 14,450 feet, is only exceeded by the far famed Mount Blanc by about one thousand feet.  The mount is located about thirteen miles from the southern border of the county, a little east of the middle, and is one of the most celebrated points of interest to travelers which our country offers.

With these characteristics in the mountain chains, the relieving features noted in the topography of Shasta County become more pronounced in Siskiyou; the vallies and level lands lying from two thousand to four thousand feet above the sea are wider and more extensive, and the proportion of tillable land is materially augmented.  Two of the large rivers of the State drain the county.  The Sacramento with its tributary streams taking their rise near the center and eastern part, unite in the county below in their journey to the south, while the Klamath entering from the north pursuing its course in a southwesterly direction in its passage, empties into the Pacific at a point nearly due west of the center of the county.

The McCloud River, rising in Mount Shasta, is the principal tributary of the Sacramento, and one of the most beautiful streams of the State.  It affords fine fishing ground, and in it are located the hatcheries and propagating beds of the United Stated Fish Commission.

To the east of the main chains of mountains, and in the northeastern part of the county, are found the lava beds, extending over into Oregon on the north, and to the east for into Modoc and Lassen Counties.  A vast, sterile plateau, the remains of some fierce volcanic convulsion of an earlier era.

Siskiyou's first settlement in 1850-51 is but a repetition of the mining history of that day.  Since that time and up to the present date, mining, although not followed so extensively, it remains the principal industry.  Until recently, however, no quartz mining had been done and no deep gravel mining attempted, so that this particular mineral development is as yet scarcely begun.

Besides the precious metals, copper, iron and coal abound, and in the southwestern part of the county rich deposits of cinnabar are found, which, when the prospects of quicksilver revive in the commercial world, will be of great value.
 In its lumber interests Siskiyou compares favorably with all the mountain counties.  Immense forests of fir and sugar pine reaching up to the snow line cover all of her mountains, and over fifteen saw mills, producing between five and six million feet of lumber and three hundred thousand shingles annually, are employed.

But after these sources of wealth are set out, the immense strides made in its agricultural development within the past few years proves that to this source must its future look most.  As the most acceptable and satisfying justification of this statement the following statistics of the year 1884 as against those of 1880 are given:  Number of acres planted in 1880, 31,400, included in which were 13,200 in wheat, 4,600 in oats, 2,300 in barley, and 250 in corn.  In 1884, total number of acres included in the sowing of the four cereals named above was 104,880, of which 95,100 was wheat, 6,000 barley, 3,600 oats, and 180 corn.  The average yield in the past five years of the foregoing staples per acre has been 18 bushels for wheat, 15 bushels for barley, 15 bushels for corn, and 14 bushels for oats.

In its capabilities for stockraising, Siskiyou takes rank with any part of the State; the foothills and mountain sides are replete with plentiful herbage upon which the winters make no perceptible diminution, and unlimited range for cattle is found at all seasons.

The assessment for 1880, in round figures, was:  Real estate, $1,000,000; improvements, $500,000; personal property, $1,500,00 - total, $3,000,000.  In 1884 the assessment rises to the following gratifying amount:  Real estate, $1,385,035; improvements, $814,194; personal property, $1,66,585 - total, $3,920,814.  The population of the county, 8,610 in 1880, will now doubtless approach close on to 10,000.

In climate no severities such as might be expected from its altitude and latitude are found, the mean temperature being sixty-two degrees for the year, ranging from about forty-two degrees in winter to eighty degrees in summer, the nights in summer being always cool and sometimes frosty.  The rainfall is always abundant.

At present Siskiyou is dependent for its outside connections upon its stage lines, which are plentiful and the roads good and well maintained.  The line of the California and Oregon Railroad passing through the center of the county from south to north, will doubtless be completed in the near future, the recent purchase of the northern end of the line from Portland south by the same parties owning the line coming up from below justifying the hope that, now that the interest are one, connection cannot long be deferred; and the county's development, so seriously retarded in the past by its distance from supplies, will show at once that this was her one great need to put her in the from rank.
