Lake County, California

McKenney's DISTRICT DIRECTORY - 1878 - 79


(This is only the Lake County portion)

Including all Residents, with Sketch of Cities and Towns

A New and Prominent Feature of this Directory is the fact that every RESIDENT LAND-OWNER in this County appears with the Number of Acres and Post Office Address


We freely use the Lake County Bee of January 3rd, 1878, in the following sketch: Lake County is rather small compared with others in the State, being only ninety miles in length and forty in width. Out of two and a quarter millions acres of land, about 100,000 are susceptible of cultivation. The balance is mountain country, of which a great deal is still held by the government. The mountain land is by no means useless, as it is the very best for vines and fruits. Large tracts of the latter are still open for pre-emption.
The climate of Lake County is unequalled in California. The hot winds of the plains, and the fogs and harsh winds of the coast, are toned down and lose their unpleasantness when they reach here. The mean summer temperature is from seventy-five to eithty-five degrees, and in winter the thermometer usually ranges from forty to sixty.
There is an absolute certainty of crops in this county, even in dry seasons.
Besides having very good agricultural prospects, Lake County is possessed of manifold riches in minerals, lumber, stock, and mineral springs, which latter thickly abound.
The Sulphur Bank mine has been and is being worked with gigantic results. A fabulous amount of quicksilver and sulphur has been developed. Besides sulphur, these works turn out one thousand flasks of quicksilver per month. On an average 175 men are employed. There are other less important but still valuable mines being worked in the county, and with satisfactory results. All this without a railroad.
The population of Lake County is 7000, and rapidly increasing. Her importance will be realized when she has better means of transportation.

County Seat and Post Office. This is the most desirable residence town that has ever presented itself to our observation. It is situated on a beautiful slope overlooking Clear Lake, at a point favorable for the view. The climate is perfection, and is much sought by invalids. When other parts of the interior of California are subjected to excessive heat, the climate here is quite agreeable, and at the same time there are no trying winds. Lakeport itself is very picturesque, and rapidly improving. Distance from Calistoga (the terminus of Railroad) fifty miles. Chief among its industries is Starr's flouring mill, the largest in the county, with a capacity of forty barrels in twelve hours. Hotels are -- Mrs. Chapman's Mound Cottages, and Greene's Stage House. An established feature of Lakeport, and one of which visitors readily avail themselves, is the tour of Clear Lake on Captain Floyd's unique little steamer "City of Lakeport", under the command of Captain Fraser. One does not realize the beauties of this sheet of water until he has taken this delightful sail. The little craft is modelled after the trans-Atlantic steamers, and although she is only about thirty-five feet in length the likeness is striking. She is possessed of (spot on paper)__at power, and can be speeded at the rate of sixteen miles an hour. During our stay at Lakeport we were the recipient of many favors from J. W. Mackall, Esq., of the Farmers' Savings Bank. He has our sincere thanks.

Post Office, town next in importance to Lakeport of this cluster. It is beautifully situated on an arm of Clear Lake, twenty-three miles from Lakeport. Its industries are important. They embrace carriage manufacturing, flouring mill, brewery, and planing mill (the only one in the county). We were pleased to meet with Mr. John B. Fitch, a relative of ex-Governor Pacheco, at Lower Lake. He will be remembered as being formerly connected with editorial department of the San Francisco Examiner, and later with the Alta California. He is now publishing the Lower Lake Bulletin, of which journalistic work he is justly proud. The Bulletin is a spicy newspaper, and printed altogether at Lower Lake. Mr. Fitch established the Democratic Standard (now entitled The Tribune) of San Luis Obispo; and also the Democratic Standard of Healdsbur (now the Russian River Flag).
