Description:

The Shasta Historical Society was formed on January 19, 1930, by a group of people who had been collecting then-living pioneers' accounts of their lives in the Gold Rush days. These accounts were then published in the newspaper as "The Trails Of 49." Collecting pioneer stories remains one of the activities of the society, but now it is a larger educational, non-profit organization. Its purposes are not only to collect, but to preserve knowledge about the ongoing history of Shasta County and, when appropriate of adjoining areas, to maintain a depository of such historical material to serve as a research library for its members and others and to spread the knowledge of local history and enjoyment to the public.
