 Ukiah, Mendocino County to Upper Soda, Shasta County California

Ukiah, Mendocino County, PO and county seat, is pleasantly located in a beautiful valley of the same name on Russian River, and on the inland mail route from San Francisco to Humboldt and the north. The place was first settled in 1856, and has prospered with the growth of the surrounding country, of which it is the trading center. The county buildings, public halls, schools and churches, are such as would be a credit to any town, and the private residences are neat and comfortable.

A fine Court House of brick, erected at a cost of $42,000, occupies a conspicuous position, and a large two-story school house of the same material, costing $10,000, is an evidence of the taste and prosperity of the citizens. Two Banks are engaged in a large and profitable business.

In the surrounding region important discoveries of quicksilver-bearing veins have recently been made, and mining will be added to the resources of the place. The soil of Ukiah Valley is very fertile, and farms, orchards, and gardens are cultivated. The climate is most agreeable and healthy, the water pure, and the scenery romantic and picturesque, making it a pleasant and attractive place of residence.

The Mendocino Democrat, and the Democratic Dispatch, are published weekly.
