Exploring Shasta County history with Jeremy M. Tuggle
Welcome to my new Blog Spot, Exploring Shasta County History, created by Google! If you enjoy Shasta County history then this is the place for you to be. I'm very passionate about local history, I own most of the photographs that will be used on this Blog Spot. If I don't own the rights to publish the photographs then a ‘used courtesy of’ will be granted to those who allow me to post their pictures.
Before we dive into the rich and compelling history of Shasta County, here is some information about me. My name is Jeremy M. Tuggle and I was born in Redding in 1982. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout from Boy Scouts of America in November of 2000, earning the highest award one can achieve in scouting. I graduated from the class of 2001 from Central Valley High School in Shasta Lake City.
I am employed at the Shasta Historical Society as their Visitor And Historical Services Associate and I also work for In Home Health Services providing care for my great grandmother. I am a descendant of 11 Shasta County pioneer families recognized by the Shasta Historical Society, the majority of my family settled between 1849-1889 in Shasta County. I am the author of two published books, Rooted in Shasta County (2003) and A Journey Through Time: Ono and the Bald Hills (2008) including various articles on local history.
As the Visitor and Historical Services Associate for the Shasta Historical Society, I visit the local schools, senior citizen homes and various organizations in our area. During my presentations I give intriguing programs and lectures about Shasta County history. I am also an active and lifetime member of the Shasta Historical Society and a member of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of California.
My wife, Leah and I, have one son, Carson. Carson's identical twin brother, Jason, died shortly after birth. Just recently, on October 2, 2017, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Major Pierson B. Reading Chapter of Redding honored me with their Community Service Award, a prestigious National award honoring my work in historic preservation in the community throughout my personal and professional life and a Chapter Achievement award. I was very pleased and honored to receive these awards from them. One minor detail I need to mention is that this web-site is not associated with the Shasta Historical Society in any form. Thank you for visiting.
