However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now.

<2>If you're interested in how the shape of California's counties, including Lassen, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
