Letts Valley

This valley was settled in 1855 by Jack and David Lett. The present lake spillway is the site of a tunnel built by them to facilitate drainage. Both brothers were killed in 1877 in an attempt to prevent squatters from settling on their land.

Plaque placed by the California State Park Commission in cooperation with the Colusa County Board of Supervisors and the Colusa Historical Society.  August 21, 1960.
