Local historian Frances Turner McBeth writes about Klamath; a city, a region, a river and a tribe. It had hopes of statehood that never came.
Klamath —–the River of Mystery—a mystery to early explorers and map makers.
Klamath —–the city—–its rise and fall—-a dream of yesterday.
Klamath——the county—-the only county in California organized and later dissolved.
Klamath——the state——a vision but never a reality.
