Am hoping someone can help me that knows the history of Cottonwood Creek. I have a postcard from July 4, 1911 showing Wagon Bridge at Cottonwood Creek from the town of "Hurah". I can't find anything about this town. Does anyone know the history or where I can learn more?
Email me at:
I suggest that you contact the genealogy specialists at the CAGenWeb Project.
The Shasta County Dept Public Works has informed me that there is no public right-of-way at the Co Rd A16 Platina Road bridge over MF Cottonwood Creek. Please let me know about any legal river access points that would enable floating any section(s) of MF Cottonwood Creek.
