We have a new web site (www.hiltcalifornia.com) that has all the latest information we are collecting on the town. This has been an incredible journey of discovery. Recently, I have been able to read all the weekly newspapers published since 1852 in Yreka. As of this posting, I am at 1944 and have uncovered many dates and information for which we only had guesses. So, go to the separate site on Hilt and follow along with our efforts to document the history of the town. Several small books are already published and two more are in stages of completion.

Also, don’t forget the annual Hilt Reunion is always the first Sunday of August.
