Little Shasta Post Office

A small settlement started here in the 1880's with two stores. A post office (established in 1888), saloon, blacksmith shop, slaughter-house, meat market, harness shop, race track, ball park and a few houses. Farther east was a grist mill. The post office was later moved one-half mile west to the Stephen Soule Ranch and operated until 1920.

I Saw The Marker

How do I share a picture of the marker? I also have pictures of the old out buildings from 1888 still standing.

  1. Thank you for letting me post. I cannot post a picture as it seems to be too large. I have never had a problem with my j.peg p[cs before, so I will post on Facebook.

  2. I fell in love with what is left of this site and the surrounding area. It sparked my interest. There were at one time approx. 16 sawmills. I go there at least once a months. This fall I found a strange tree. I researched this tree. I found that the rancher's in the early days used the Osage trees as a fence line. They have a strange fruit that falls hard and green. It has a citrus smell. The Osage nation has different ways of using this fruit. Old timers and those of today use it as aromatherapy. I have pictures of this area and the beautiful thorny trees too. Mt. Shasta looms over Little Shasta Valley, giving it a very beautiful [picturesque site of days gone by...
