Group Seek to Save Landmark
February 21, 1937
Action to save old Fort Roop on Weatherlow Street as a landmark of the City of Susanville has been taken by the chamber of commerce.
It has been agreed to obtain an option on the ground on which it stands and later rebuild the historic structure.
The fort was erected eighty-two years ago by Isaac Newton Roop, first provisional governor of Nevada, Governor Roop’s name is welded with the early history of Susanville and Lassen County. He came to California on October 18, 1850.
