LMUD Presents: This Day in Susanville History – February 6, 1909

An early 1900’s map of the Honey Lake Valley showing the “Greenough Reservoir”

WP At Work in Lassen County
February 6, 1909

It will not be many months before the Western Pacific’s iron horses will be speeding through the southern end of Honey Lake Valley. Already the advance crews of that company are grading around the point below Lake Greeno, about thirty miles from Susanville.

Many settlers are either homesteading or filing desert claims on all available land in that section and expect with water pumped from Honey Lake to develop farms of great productiveness.

While the Western Pacific will not traverse many miles of Lassen County, it will be very convenient in the way of earlier mails and more satisfactory transportation.

Mail should arrive here at least twenty-four hours earlier and one will not be compelled to pass through the State of Nevada in traveling to and from the southern part of this State.
