Mount Shasta history:

Here is a history page for Mt. Shasta.

When first applying for a name, the post office nixed the name of Straberry Valley because they said there were plenty of requests for that name. The people chose Berryvale as their town name. The old post office still stands near the fish hatchery. Later, the railroad built in the valley and wanted a town along the rails. They purchased land from Justin H. Sisson and named the new town Sisson. Berryvale moved to the new site near the railroad. The town was known as Sisson until after World War I when it was re-named Mount Shasta City. While most of the towns in the general area were "company towns," Sisson was not and remained freely owned. Many of the lumberjacks and miners from surrounding areas came to Sisson for fun because of the great restrictions on activities in the other company-owned towns. Sisson, using the abundant wood in the area, built nearly all its buildings of this material. Because of this, the town burned down regularly, but was always re-built. Because of the frequent fires, few relics and artifacts of early days remain. No buildings of the early years exist in their original form.
