Lake Shastina, Sales Map, Tract No. 1000-7-2

Undated, likely mid-1970s. 34 x 25-inch map showing hundreds of small lots for sale in this subdivision in Weed, near Mount Shasta in Siskyou County. Folding creases, one split along a fold, a few minor notations; very good. Development at Lake Shastina began in 1968 and focused on enticing well-heeled city dwellers in the Bay Area and Los Angeles to purchase lots for investment, second homes, or retirement. Lots were initially offered at $5,000, and the developer, Golden West Associates, offered free rountrip flights for potential buyers to see the proprety. In a 2009 interview upon his retirement, the long-time general manager of the development recalled, “We couldn’t sub-divide fast enough to keep up with sales. In the early ’70s lots were selling for $17,000 to $25,000. The sales people could sell $2 million a weekend in real estate.” Today, the community is home to about 2,700 people, but some of the lots shown on this ambitious sales map remain empty.
