In February 1976, L & H International Development of Alameda announced plans to construct a new shopping center, to be known as Lassen, at the east end of Susanville on land located between Main Street and Fair Drive. At that time the property was occupied by Susanville Auto Wreckers and Langslet Mobile Homes. One of the biggest hurdles in the project was the acquisition of a small segment of the Paul Bunyan Logging Road. When the shopping center opened, its anchor store was Holiday Market. The Round Table Pizza Parlor is only business that has remained since the Lassen Shopping Center opened.
