Fort Jones ~ Originally a stage stop/tavern on the stage route between Yreka and the old town of Shasta, in Shasta County, the town was first called Wheelock after its founder. The town had several other names including Scottsburg and Scottsville. The military fort, called Fort Jones, which was operated from 1852 to 1857 was named after Colonel Roger Jones, Adjutant General of the Army. The Fort, which was located a few miles from the town, was abandoned in 1857 leaving only its name.
