1857 · History of Susanville, CA

Age 10

Susanville was named after Susan Roop, daughter of Isaac Roop, an early settler.[4] It was first called Rooptown, and the present name was adopted in 1857.[4] The Susanville US post office was established in 1860.[6] Susanville was incorporated in 1900.[6] Formerly the center of farming, mining and the lumber industry, Susanville suffered from the loss of jobs as these industries changed or declined in the 20th century. Since the late 20th century, the only area of growth in the economy has been associated with the construction and operation of two state prisons in the city and one federal prison in the area. In 2007 half of the adult population of Susanville worked in the prisons:[9] the California Correctional Center, a minimum-medium security facility, which opened in 1963; the High Desert State Prison, California (not to be confused with High Desert State Prison, Nevada), which opened in 1995; and the Federal Correctional Institution, Herlong, which opened in 2007.
