|Landmark #763||Lassen County||Visited: Sept. 27, 2014||Plaque? YES! 🙂|
|What is it?||A plaque marking the Lassen Emigrant Trail’s route through Bieber, California!|
|What makes it historical?||THE GUIDE SAYS: Peter 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!
