History of Plumas County as of 1885 (select tab to open/close):

This county is situated in the northeastern part of the State, and is the third from the north on its eastern border.  It is bounded on the north and east by Lassen, on the south by Sierra and Yuba, and on the west by Butte and Tehama counties, and contains an area of 1,511,040 acres.  In the original formation of the county a great part of the present area of Lassen, which was not then in existence as a county, was included, but the troubles arising from the undefined boundary line between the States of California and Nevada, incidental to which was the refusal of the Honey Lake settlers to recognize Plumas county's right of jurisdiction over them, and which culminated in the "Sage Brush" war of 1863, induced the authorities of the state, after California's right to the disputed ground was definitely settled, to separate if from Plumas, and accordingly in 1864, the Legislature erected the county of Lassen as at present constituted.  Plumas is bisected by the main chain of the Sierra Nevadas, and the county, from its situation, is entirely of a broken and mountainous character, its altitude varying from 3,000 to 10,430 (Mount Lassen) feet above the sea; despite this fact, the numerous vallies of greater or less extent, formed by the Feather river and its tributaries which rising in the eastern part of the county pierces it from east to west, and the fertile lands of the American valley, lying in the southern part of the county, completely overthrow the idea which its broken character may create in the minds of those unacquainted with its topography, that its capacities in an agricultural point of view are but limited.  On the contrary within the range of the vallies so formed, which comprises no inconsiderable portion of the area of the county, no more prolific soil can be found within the State than is here presented, and although as yet the agricultural development has not gotten entirely out of the old primitive methods, enough has been done to justify in the returns received from the work, Plumas' right to share with the rest of our great west in that trite old aphorism, "You have but to thickly the soil and the harvest laughs."

In its mining industries the county has made great progress.  The large districts included in the Johnsonville, Crescent Mills, Greenville and La Porte locations, situated in the central portion of the county from north to south, have already attracted great attention and secured the investment of considerable outside capital.  The yield from these mines, much as it has already shown and justifying in all cases, where fair tests have been made of their capacity for profit is but a tithe of the product which they are destined to present in the near future, as facilities and communications become more available.  Abundant water power for crushing purposes or for general mining use is had all the year, and it only awaits the time for its capabilities to become thoroughly known to enterprising capitalists for Plumas to assume a position in the vanguard of the various counties of the State in the production of precious metals.  At present this industry engages directly about two-thirds of its population.

But it is to the possibilities of the country in the realizing upon its immense wealth of timber possessions that Plumas must expect the greatest results in the future.  Aside from the vallies the county is entirely and thickly grown with the most valuable timber belt in the Sierras, consisting chiefly of sugar pine.  This particular growth is so well appreciated, that notwithstanding it has to be teamed extraordinary distances and over mountainous roads to Reno, Nevada, the nearest accessible railroad point, it finds a ready market as far east as Utah.  Immense tracts of this land, yet unclaimed, is open for entry, and stands here with open bounteous hands inviting the hardy pioneer to anticipate the time when increased means of marketing will induce large capitalists, by purchase, to remove it all from within the reach of entry under the beneficent provisions of our Homestead and Timber Land Acts.

In salubrity of climate the county partakes of the usual healthful character of our mountain counties.  Its streams are cool and pleasant, its springs large and plentiful, and it has already developed summer resorts where health, pleasure and rest can be sought and obtained, which compare favorably and secure patronage equally with all of the other established resorts of the State.

The system of roads maintained is of the highest character as compared with other mountain counties, all important towns being connected, and the condition of the roads is zealously watched and repairs promptly made.

Post, express and telegraph office. Situated at an extremity of the beautiful Indian Valley, twenty-eight miles from Quincy. Dependent upon mining and farming. Population 600. Elevation 3544 feet. It possesses an enterprising weekly newspaper (The Bulletin) a good hotel (The Greenville), a large foundry, brewery, bottling works and soda factory, a flour and shingle mill and several other business houses. The Greenville race track is pronounced by horse men one of the best in the state. The Greenville Foundry, owned by Messrs, Bidwell & Watson, is a large establishment with unusual facilities and employs about twelve men. The works has undertaken and completed several large contracts, chief among which is the Green Mountain Company's mill (sixty stamps.) All the manufacturing business and quartz mills of Greenville are run by water power. The Round Valley Water Company's reservoir covers an area of seven hundred acres, and the ditch therefrom traverses eight miles, in which distance it furnishes water for six mills, aggregating one hundred and seventy-five stamps. The Greenville Water Works furnishes the town water supply, and under such pressure that, with the well organized hose company, the town is fully protected against fire. Mr. Bidwell has constructed a telephone from Crescent Mills to Big Meadows, Bidwell's Bridge (where he has a hotel for summer visitors to the fishing grounds.) The line is twenty-two miles long, and touches the principal mines of the neighborhood. The large amount of capital invested in and about Greenville indicates great faith in the locality. The neighborhood is replete with pretty landscapes and the town is only two hours' ride from the most famous trout fishing grounds on the Pacific slope.

Onion Valley (see Nelson Point)

Pioneer (see Nelson Point)

Poor Man's Creek (see Nelson Point)

Prattville (see Cariboo)

A post, express and telegraph office, and the county seat of Plumas county. Connected by stage with Oroville, tri- weekly, and also with Central Pacific Railroad at Reno, Nev., daily. Population six hundred. Elevation 3,416 feet. Quincy is situated in the fertile American Valley where all the small grains and fine fruits are raised. The valley is also a great stock and dairying country, and is peculiarly adapted to the development of fine horses. There are several large mines and saw mills which are actively worked in the vicinity. The town itself is a beautiful place, tastefully laid out, and substantially built in the business quarter, while its residences, as a group and individually, look bright, cozy and elegant. There are two fine hotels in the town-the Plumas House and the Quincy. The former is a favorite place with travelers in the northeastern portion of the State, who, availing themselves of its comfortable accommodations, generally indulge in a resting spell at Quincy. The Quincy Hotel is also well up in favor and enjoys a good share of public patronage. The Plumas National (weekly) is published here by Mr. Halstead, a gentleman well acquainted with the resources and possibilities of the county. It enjoys a good circulation and patronage.
