Red Bluff History
The area was originally inhabited by Native American people called Nomlaki. They perished in the 1830s due to an epidemic of malaria. Spanish explorers were the first Europeans to come to this area. In 1850, Charles Wilson and Sashel Woods began developing a town which they named Leodocia. Later, it was also called Covertsburg, before finally being given the name Red Bluff. It was incorporated as a city in 1876.
