Area Information
: History: Montague ~ The town was built as a stop on the California-Oregon railroad, by the Prather Brothers. The post office was established in 1887. Stage service was provided from Montague to Yreka, which was eventually supplanted by the Yreka-Western railroad. Yreka ~ Gold was discovered here in 1851 at a spot called "Thompson's Dry Diggins". Miners poured into the town which was called Shasta Butte City. The mining boom was over in 1885, but by then the town was well established. Joaquin Miller described Yreka during 1853-54 as a bustling place with "...a tide of people up and down and across other streets, as strong as if in New York". More stage lines used the town for a stage stop than any other community in the state. Two sizable Chinatowns existed on Miner Street and in 1889 a shortline railroad connected the city with the Southern Pacific's westcoast line. The heart of the community, then and now, was Miner Street--named appropriately enough after those hardworking individuals who built the town. Average Temperature: January - 33.8, July - 72.5 Annual Rainfall: 12.12 inches Annual Snowfall: 8.9 inches Shasta Valley, a 340-square-mile basin drained by Shasta River, is located in Siskiyou County. A flat, arid plain north of Mount Shasta, the valley is punctuated by hundreds of hills, ridges, and small closed depressions (not connected by surface streams). The Shasta River drains northward through the valley to join the Klamath River near the Oregon border. Geologists found that a gigantic sector of a volcano, Ancestral Mt. Shasta, collapsed catastrophically and avalanched into Shasta Valley about 300,000 years ago. This great avalanching landslide was 20 times more voluminous than that of Mount St. Helens!
