A Little Bit About Plumas County
Plumas County was formed from parts of Butte County in 1854. It was only natural to name the county for the river that flows through it - Feather River. In 1821, the river was named el rio de las plumas (the river of feathers) by Spanish explorer Luis Antonio Argüelo for the multitude of waterfowl that he observed upon its waters. In about 1850, the river's name was anglicized to Feather River.
