Today we celebrate our 87th anniversary since the Shasta Historical Society was formed January 18, 1930, under the name of “Trails of ‘49”, with interest in pioneer history and in historical landmarks. The charter members were: Miss Alice M Reading, Miss May Hazel Southern, Mrs. George B. Lowdon, Mrs. Edna Behrens Eaton, Charles Browne, Francis Carr, Lew Carrigan, Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Loomis, Charles Litsch, Mrs. Nettie Prehn, Mrs. Amelia Early, Mrs. Thyra Heffelfinger, Fred Dersch, James M. Bartlett and M.E. Dittmar. Our vision: to build a shared community legacy for the future by preserving our past. Our mission: to actively preserve, promote, and bring to life the history of Shasta County.

Tomorrow kicks off our holiday season which means we will reopen on Saturday's from December 3rd thru the 17th from 10 a.m., to 4 p.m., to give you extra time to shop for that special gift, and any research you might need to complete.
