History & History Related Items

The first settler of the area was Isaac Roop, who established the Republic of Nataqua. This area later joined the Nevada Territory. Mr. Roop was the first Provisional Governor of Nevada and later a U.S. Senator. In the 1860's, California surveyed the area and discovered it to be part of California. The local citizens did not want to accept this change and fought back. After a day-long gunfight, they gave up and the city became part of California. The city was named Susanville after Roop's only daughter, Susan. It is located near the Lassen National Forest.
