LOCATION 22 | The Modoc War: A Homeland Lost
Left On Matney Way
Now slow down, because coming up on your left, do you see the red house and the grey weathered building? Just past them, you'll be taking the next left on Matney Way, named for a famous local rancher. But in 1871, the parceling of this valley was at odds with what the Modoc wanted: a small, six square mile reservation along the Lost River.
