California Landmarks in Shasta County
California Landmark 519
US 99 and Clear Creek Road
An employee of a nearby business said that a plaque used to stand at this intersection, but she did not remember when it disappeared.
Head about seven miles out Clear Creek Road for a more bucolic site, Reading's Bar.
Erected in 1851 by J. J. Bell, this was an important toll bridge on the road from Shasta City to Tehama. Bell's Mansion, erected in 1859 on Clear Creek, was a favorite stopping place for miners on their way to the Shasta, Trinity, and Siskiyou gold fields.
