In 1897, Abner Weed bought the Siskiyou Lumber and Mercantile Mill and 280acre of land in what is now the City of Weed, for the sum of $400. By the 1940s Weed boasted the world's largest sawmill.Boles FireOn September 15, 2014, a fast moving wildfire called the "Boles Fire" spread through the town with massive force fueled by 40-mph winds. The fire started behind the Boles Creek Apartments in the central part of Weed at approximately 1:30pm and within 4 hours quickly spread to over 200 acres. Evacuations were immediately ordered and a shelter was first set up at College of the Siskiyous, but as fire headed towards the college, the evacuation center was relocated to the Siskiyou Golden Fairgrounds in Yreka, then Yreka and Mount Shasta High Schools, then the Armory in Mt. Shasta.With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Weed and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
