About Shasta County

How to Beat a Shasta County Traffic Ticket

“Shasta” is the English derivative of the name of the Native American people once living in the area around what is now known as Mount Shasta. When the county was formed in 1850, Mount Shasta was included in the original territory lines, however, since 1852, the peak is now a part of Siskiyou County. Land from the original county’s territory was also given to Tehama County in 1856. While California’s popularity was first due to the promise of gold, in 1897 copper replaced gold as the number one mineral produced in Shasta County, a distinction it held until the 1950’s.

Today’s county lines are marked on the east, north, and west side by the mountains which allows Shasta County a total area of 3,847 square miles. With just under 180,000 people, a major portion of Shasta’s economy is based on service, retail, and local government services. In addition, agriculture is a continued part of the resource economy having evolved from traditional ranching to a more intensive nuts and viticulture seen today.

Shasta County is home to the world’s largest sundial, the Sundial Bridge, which has become to be known as the most costly and inaccurate time piece on earth. The $23 million Sundial Bridge tells time accurately only on June 21st (the summer solstice). The remaining days of the year, the sundial can only record the hours from 11am to 3pm as it casts too large of a shadow to read outside of those times.
