What makes it historical? THE GUIDE SAYSPeter Lassen opened the Lassen Emigrant Trail in 1848 when he led a 12-wagon emigrant train from Missouri to California. The route, which passed near this place, was extensively traveled during the years 1848-53 by emigrants seeking gold, adventure, and a new life in the west – but because of the hardships of the route and the hostility of the Indians, the trail was little used after 1853.

OTHER TIDBITS: That pretty well sums it up!
