The Presbyterian church, built in 1881,  was the first church constructed in Redding. It was located on the south-east corner of Butte and Pine streets, but this original building was burned to the ground on September 13, 1915, and a new one – with a different style – was built on the same site.

The Shasta Historical Society library is open to the public and volunteers are available to assist with research. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information call 530.243.3720 or click here to visit the Shasta Historical Society website.

    With the destruction and removal of almost all of Redding's beautiful old and historical building we have lost much our charm. The County Supervisors and the City Council should do something to protect remaining buildings and put forth new regulations to the look of new construction in the downtown core.
