Hayden Hill
Hayden Hill, 1894
Hayden Hill is Lassen County’s best known mining community. However, and especially in the late 1800s, there were numerous mining camps surrounding the hill. One of these was Lewiston. It was a very short-lived mining camp in 1884, that Joseph W. Hayden named after his partner, Seneca Lewis. Of note, both Hayden and Lewis are buried in the Hayden Hill Cemetery.
