Town Of Scotia
Perfect weather. Beautiful scenery. Attractive architecture. Historic charm. Structures built to stand the test of time. These are just a few of the attributes of the town of Scotia. Located in the heart of California Redwood Country, Scotia was developed starting in 1880s, and for more than a century was maintained as a true company town. The entire town was developed and built by The Pacific Lumber Company, with residences occupied by its employees. The sawmills, commercial, and community structures were also built by PALCO, creating a long-term, self-sufficient community.
The Town of Scotia Company now owns the residential and commercial structures, while the sawmill is owned and operated by Humboldt Redwood Company. The Scotia Community Services District is the governing body in town, owning and managing community assets such as the water and wastewater treatment plants, and parks and recreational facilities, such as Fireman’s Park, and the baseball and soccer fields. The SCSD is governed by a 5-member Board of Directors elected locally by Residents.
Excellent opportunities for owning property or doing business in Scotia are available as the transition from company town to thriving independent community is taking place.
