Lake County History

The Lake County has a rich history that dates back several centuries.

The long history of the County and its unique cultural heritage traverses modern-day agricultural production of pears and wine grapes, the Pomp Indians, Mount Konocti and the ancient Clear Lake, and hot springs resorts built at the turn of the century.

Lake County has preserved its natural resources and ancient architectural buildings from earlier centuries for the future generation.

The Pomos, native Americans, thrived on waterfowl, game, plants, and fish. The golden eagle and bald eagle that continue to nest in the County were off hunting limits for the Pomos. The two birds were deemed great and dangerous.

The Pomos used tule grass for weaving intricate baskets for fishing and cooking, and making fishing boats. The grass was also used to make sitting and sleeping mats, dance costumes, shelters, and diaper filling.

The American natives trekked the Pacific coast annually, collecting beads along the way for use as currency.
