Contrary to popular belief Shasta County was named for Mount Shasta and not the soft drink of the same name. Although the soda is also the namesake of the mountain, the term Shasta derives from the native tribe that once inhabited the area.
Shasta County is known for its woodland areas which contain mixed conifer oaks and Douglas fir trees. The Sacramento River flows through the middle of the county and its lush fauna and flora further add to the aesthetic. Over one half of the county area is overrun by nationally protected forests (Shasta-trinity & Whiskeytown recreational area).

With a total population of 177,223 spread throughout Anderson, Redding and Shasta Lake City, the county has a sizeable veteran contingent of nearly 20,000. These vets directly benefit from the Veterans Services Office of Shasta County, located in Redding. This office offers veterans networking options, benefits counseling, claims preparation and many other services. Area veterans further gain from the outpatient clinic also located in Shasta County.
Local veterans living in Shasta are eligible for property tax exemptions. Vets who received an honorable discharged may be able to qualify for annual exemptions of up to $4,000. A disabled veteran (or surviving spouse in some circumstances) potentially can receive the first $100,000 – $150,000 of their properties value exempted from property tax.
