||A plaque by the side of the road!
|What makes it historical?

Other tidbits: That pretty well sums it up!
|HOW CAN I HELP KEEP IT HISTORICAL?
- You can become a member of the Native Sons of the Golden West!
- You can donate to the Shasta Historical Society!
- You can be a responsible visitor! That means respecting the signs and pathways and treating all structures and artifacts with respect! After all, they’ve endured a lot already to make it into the present! They’ll need our help to make it to the future!
