NORTHERN CALIFORNIA COUNTIES AND THEIR BOUNDARIES 1850-1880
Northern California Counties 1850-1880
Shasta County was created on February 18, 1850, as one of the original twenty-seven counties of California.

Here is what Shasta County looked like between the years: 1850 and 1880, after many changes to its boundary lines as new counties were created.
