Whiskeytown in Shasta County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Tower House Historic District
Water is the thread that connects history here. These streams provided year-round water, relief from the valley’s hot summers, and a dependable source of salmon and other fish. Later, the waters were used to irrigate gardens and orchards, quench thirsty horses, and help mine gold. If you walk all or part of this 1 ½ mile trail system, you can discover the stories of people drawn to these fertile stream banks.
