be screened Wednesday evening at the Susanville Historic Railroad Depot

Nobles Trail Topic For This Wednesday's Discover Lassen Presentation

Development and use of the Nobles Emigrant Trail, an important 19th century pioneer route that passed through what is now Susanville, will be the topic of a Lassen Land and Trails Trust "Discover Lassen" presentation this Wednesday, April 17th, at 7:00p.m., at the historic Susanville Railroad Depot, 601 Richmond Rd. in Susanville.

Speakers will include Ken Johnson, author of The Nobles Emigrant Trail, and Jake Martin, an archaeologist with the Bureau of Land Management's Eagle Lake Field Office in Susanville.

The presentation will include a screening of a short film, The Historic Nobles Emigrant Trail, produced by the Advanced Laboratory of Visual Anthropology at California State University, Chico, in partnership with the BLM and Susanville Indian Rancheria.

Explorer William Nobles pioneered the trail in 1851 and it came into wide use a year later. It gained popularity as a shorter and more direct route to California's Sacramento Valley. Thousands of emigrants used the route.

Remnants of the trail are still visible. Johnson will present a slide show and explain that the trail from the Nevada's Black Rock Desert to Shasta City in California is one of the easiest and most interesting emigrant trails that can be paralleled in vehicles.

Legion Men Join in Ceremony at Susanville
April 15, 1926

Joining forces, American Legion men from Susanville and Reno laid the cornerstone of the Lassen Legion Memorial at Susanville yesterday, more than forty members of Darrell Dunkle post of Reno, driving up to the Lassen town.

The principal speech of the day was made by Judge Thomas Moran of Reno. He dwelt on the friendliness between the northern part of California and Nevada and paid a touching tribute to the late John E. Raker, California congressman.

H. G. Mathewson, representing the department commander of California and E. F. Koken, Lassen county road supervisor, also spoke, George Winchester, commander of Thomas Tucker post of Susanville, presided and the cornerstone ceremonies were opened with a prayer by H. C Lind, Thomas Tucker post adjutant.

The ceremonies were simple but were taken part in by all civic and fraternal orders of Susanville and legion men from Westwood attended.
