Building the Dam for Lake Siskiyou: c. 1969

Box Canyon Dam and Lake Siskiyou are relative newcomers to the south Siskiyou County area. The dam was constructed southwest of Mt. Shasta City for flood control in 1969. The resulting waters covered up two old and beautiful ranches belonging to the Boss and Spini families.
