Explore – Shasta State Historic Park

Six miles west of Redding a row of old, half-ruined, brick buildings remind passing motorists that Shasta City, the lusty “Queen City” of California’s northern mining district, once stood on this site. These ruins and some of the nearby roads, cottages, and cemeteries are all silent but eloquent vestiges of the intense activity that was centered here during the California gold rush.

Experience a unique opportunity to explore the Union Cemetery and the histories of the pioneers that are buried there. A closer look at these past Shasta residents provides a fuller look into what it was like to live the bustling Gold Rush City of Shasta during the 1800s.
