Historical Map of Shasta, CA - 1856

Shasta, Shasta County.

The town of Shasta emerged during the 1850's as a gold mining encampment and supply center for mining speculators during California’s Gold Rush era. The town grew with the mining industry, eventually becoming an important shipping hub for mule trains and stagecoaches associated with the region’s mining activities.

In the 1880's Shasta was bypassed by the railroad in favor of Redding and the town began to lose its popularity. Today only a ghost-town exists, lying entirely within Shasta State Historic Park.

This illustrated map was drawn by Kuchel & Dresel in 1856. It shows streets and buildings.
