From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William B. Ide Adobe State Historic Park is a park located in the Shasta Cascade area of Northern California, south of Redding. The park was named after William B. Ide, a California pioneer and a commander of the short-lived California Republic, which lasted from June 14 to July 9, 1846. There is an adobe memorial to him located in a picnic area overlooking the Sacramento River. The park contains an old adobe home, carriage shed, blacksmith shop and a small visitor center. An episode of California's Gold visited the park as part of a profile of its namesake.[1]

The park is one of the 48 California state parks which were proposed for closure in January 2008 by California's Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger as part of a deficit reduction program, since rescinded following public outcry.[2]
