Shingletown in Shasta County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
People of the Land
In the 1820s fur traders penetrated Lassenís woods, and word about the region spread. Settlers arrived in earnest by the 1850s. Soon after, a railroad and dependable wagon roads came to the area. With access to distant markets lumberman, miners, cattlemen, and sheepherders began to flourish. Reports of Lassenís volcanic wonders brought scientists, and, soon after, tourists. And finally, following Lassen Peakís 1915 eruption, came a national park - a park for all people.
Erected by National Park Service.
