How To Use This Site

The purpose of this site is to record the history of Concow and Oregon Townships in Butte County, Ca. located between Pentz and Pulga along the Highway 70 Corridor. If you want to look around and see some cool stuff, visit the Theater and Museum and read the Newsletters. We have some things for sale in the Book Store and a membership form available if you would like to support us in our efforts .

For more detailed information about what we’ve discovered about our history, open the PDF timeline on the area’s history below, which covers our local history. The timeline is downloadable and can  be printed but be forewarned, it is a large file. There is a second timeline in the Native American section of the Archives devoted exclusively to the Native American history in the area.

The timelines contain information from various sections of the archives, newspapers, claims, deeds, deaths and in some cases published books or government records. The last date the timeline was updated is listed on the first page. See the article on Timelines and Indexes for more information about the two.

Please Note: The PDF timeline below can be viewed in your browser and searched by keyword by using Control F on your keyboard when the file is open. This function is very helpful with these large files in finding a specific person, subject, place, etc. The Control F Function does not work on photographs or the text embedded in the photo.
