 Red Bluff, Tehama County California

Red Bluff, Tehama County, PO and County seat, is on the west bank of the Sacramento River at the head of steamboat navigation, and on the line of the California and Oregon Railroad, 240 miles by the river north of Sacramento, and 1.3.5 miles by land. The great valley which stretches in a broad, unbroken plain from the Tejon Pass, 450 miles to this point, is here first interrupted by the approach of hills to the river, though Red Bluff is not at the head, as a succession of small valleys continue it." many miles further. Previous to the completion of the railroad, this was the entrepot of trade for the northern portion of the State, and is still a prosperous place from the business of its more immediate surroundings, being the center of a large wood and lumber trade. The Blue Ridge Lumber Company has its headquarters here, and has a large planing mill and manufactory of sash, blinds, doors, etc. The population numbers about 1,800 and is rapidly increasing. The Presbyterians, Baptists and Catholics have fine churches and large congregations. Masons, Odd Fellows and Good Templars' Lodges have each capacious halls, and the people boast of having the finest public school building in the northern part of the State. Two newspapers, the Sentinel and the People's Cause, are published weekly.
