Lassen County Courthouse

Lassen County was officially created on April 1, 1864 and three months later Susanville's founder, Isaac Roop, donated this city block for the Lassen County Courthouse.

On January 23, 1886 Holden Dick and Mexican Ben were lynched here, marking the last incident of this kind in Lassen County.

Dedication ceremonies for the Lassen County Courthouse were held on September 21, 1917 and the jail built in 1911 was condemned in 1971.

Dedicated on August 8, 1994
