USDA Boundary Details

Shasta County, located in the northern portion of California, was officially established on February 18, 1850, as one of the original 27 counties of the state. It is named after Mount Shasta, the region's most prominent landmark and one of the tallest mountains in California. The county covers an area of approximately 3,847 square miles and has a rich history that dates back thousands of years.

Before European settlers arrived, the region was inhabited by various Native American tribes, most notably the Wintu, Yana, and Achomawi. These tribes lived off the land and relied on the abundant natural resources found in the area, such as the Sacramento River and its tributaries, fertile soil, and diverse wildlife.

With the California Gold Rush in 1849, the area experienced an influx of newcomers in search of fortune. As a result, Shasta County became an important hub of transportation, communication, and trade during this time. The county seat, Shasta City, once known as "Queen City" of the northern mines, was a bustling mining town during the mid-19th century, but it eventually declined in prominence when the railroad bypassed it in favor of Redding.

Today, Shasta County still possesses remnants of its mining past, and several other industries contribute to its economy, such as timber, agriculture, and recreation. The county is known for its stunning landscapes, including the Lassen Volcanic National Park, Shasta Lake, and the iconic Mount Shasta.

Fun Fact: Shasta County has a unique attraction called the Sundial Bridge. Designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, this pedestrian bridge spans the Sacramento River in Redding and is famous for its distinctive sundial shape. The 217-foot tall glass and steel structure is not just a bridge, but also serves as a working sundial, making it one of the largest sundials in the world.
