Saturday’s Historical Society Annual Meeting To Feature Nobles Trail Author Ken Johnston

Sunday, January 13th, 2019

Author Ken Johnston’s excellent book on the Nobles Trail will be on sale at Saturday’s meeting.

The Historical Society’s Annual Membership Meeting will be held at 1:00p.m. this Saturday, January 19th, at the historic Susanville Railroad Depot on Richmond Road. All members are strongly urged to attend and new members will be welcome as officers are chosen for the upcoming year.

President Jeremy Couso will give a brief year-in-review, elections will be held for two board officers and then author Ken Johnston, who has penned an excellent book on the subject, will be making a presentation on the Nobles Trail.

“William Nobles pioneered the Nobles Trail in 1851,” explains Johnston in his book. “It provided a shortcut between the Applegate in Nevada and the last section of the Lassen Trail in California. It became what all other trails to California would have wanted to become: shorter, more direct to its destination, water and grass located in short intervals along the way, low elevation passes, no steep ascents or descents, and a civilized destination where provisions could be obtained.”

The public is welcome to come hear the presentation, which will be followed by a potluck lunch. Copies of Johnston’s book will be on sale at the meeting.

If you are a fan of local history you should join the Lassen Historical Society! Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the history of our area.
