Beautiful Indian Valley, California!

About Our Valley

A Premiere Gateway community to Lake Almanor and Lassen Volcanic National Park.
Our picturesque mountain meadow land has been enchanting visitors since pioneer explorers first came here during the golden days of '49. Peter Lassen, the controversial Dane, found the area so attractive he took time out from his travels of exploration to erect a cabin and open a trading post on the sunny side of the valley during the summer of 1851. The region was called Cache Valley at the time; the name was subsequently changed by the Noble party which passed through the area and was impressed by the number of natives residing here.

Permanent settlers soon followed to take up the fertile fields and plant roots for their families. Many of the homes and farm buildings seen in the valley today were erected by these early pioneers.

Modern visitors frequently tell us it is love at first sight when they view our verdant meadows and the alpine mountains which surround us. We hope that you will share these sentiments, and that you will pause with us long enough to see more of our little corner of the world. Please consider this a most sincere invitation to our area.
