Introduction to Colusa, California
In 1849, Charles D. Semple purchased the land that later became Colusa. In 1850, Semple founded the city under the name Colusi, but it was changed to Colusa in 1854. The area's first post office was established in 1851. Because the city is located along the Southern Pacific Railroad, it developed rapidly and gradually became an ideal resting place for travelers.
